White-Line Color Woodcuts

Exhibition Website

May 3 2017 - Aug 6 2017

The white-line color woodcut was an early twentieth-century innovation that allowed artists to print multiple colors from a single carved woodblock. 

Originating with the Provincetown Printers in Massachusetts, the technique offered simplicity of execution as well as a painterly result. 

Featuring beautiful examples of white-line woodcuts ranging in subject, style, and complexity, this installation, along with a display of Arts and Crafts decorative arts, complements the harmonious ideals of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Little Library, on permanent view at the Museum.
