Blanche Lazzell: The Hoffman Drawings

Ridderhof Martin Gallery 

January 13-February 25, 2005

Opening Reception: 5-7pm, Jan. 13, 2005

Lazzel (1878-1956), a cubist painter who is well-known for her white-lined woodblock print, received a degree from West Virginia University in 1905. She later studied at the Art Students League, as well as in Paris and Provincetown, Mass. As she continued her studies, her work became more and more informed by modernism; however, it was her involvement in Hans Hofmann’s drawing class in 1937 which helped Lazzel return to abstraction.
