Prints & Photographs
Blanche Lazzell was considered a primary, and particularly avant-garde,
member of a group of artists known as the Provincetown Printmakers
working in Massachusetts around the early 1900s. June Roses
reflects the artist's growing interest in Cubism and is a stellar
example of the Provincetown hallmark style of white-line color woodcut
technique and of the Japanese-influenced style known as japonisme.
In 1923, Lazzell moved to Paris to pursue studies with leading Cubist
painter Fernand Lèger.
