In the spring of 1915, a group of American art students, including Edna Boies Hopkins, left wartime Paris and settled in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Here, they began making prints with Japanese-inspired compositions using a unique technique--a "white line" color-woodcut method--that would come to represent the group. A principal print-maker in the art colony, Hopkins lived and studied in Japan and Paris before returning to the United States.
