Print Blocks

Provincetown printing blocks: I consider the printing blocks that produced the Provincetown Prints works of art themselves. Since the entire image is on the one block and residual color from the last printing is often on the block, they are often quite beautiful. I curated a show of printing blocks by Agnes Weinrich, Karl Knaths and Ora Inge Maxim at the Provincetown Art Association andMuseum in 1988.

Look for (usually) soft-wood blocks of ordinary board with incised grooves and remaining color in the block (the brighter the colors the better)…but don't enhance the color yourself or clean the block! There is usually a carved groove around the border of the image. There is often another image carved on the back.These blocks are rarely signed. I am interested in buying these printing blocks.
