Did You Know?

Chaffee only made woodcuts for a concentrated period of about six years.

Description

Ada Gilmore Chaffee was one of numerous artists who gathered and worked together in Provincetown, Massachusetts, around 1915. The group exclusively made woodcuts, using the “white line” style seen in this print. Rather than black outlines, Chaffee relied on vivid areas of color to depict a woman in a patterned skirt giving a bowl of milk to a cat.
