Blanche Lazzell’s name is synonymous with the art of white-line color woodcut, a technique developed in Provincetown in the early 20th century. The Seine Boat (1927) was newly acquired for the Museum’s collection through a fund established by Evalyn Milman ’60 and Stephen Milman ’58, MBA ’59. Read more about Lazzell’s work on the Johnson’s website.
Stephanie Syjuco was born in the Philippines and works in Oakland, California.
