Closing day of WHITE-LINE COLOR WOODCUTS

Date

August 6 (Sunday)
Closing day of WHITE-LINE COLOR WOODCUTS
Noon–4 p.m.
 

Today is the final day to see the exhibition White-Line Color Woodcuts in the Decorative Arts Corridor on the Museum’s first floor. 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.Special thanks to John Rossetti.
