Henry David Thoreau Birthplace #1 is an original white-line woodcut print by
Keith Bergman. Image 6.5 by 8.
The white-line woodcut or Provincetown print is a single block printing method developed in Provincetown in 1915. The image is carved in wood and then the color is applied to the wood block. The white line gives a skeleton or outline to the print.
Bergman was taught the single block printing method by Kathryn Smith, who was taught by her grandmother, Ferrol Sibley Warthen, a student of Blanche Lazzell. Lazell was one of the founding members of the Provincetown Printers.
Winning bidder to pay handling and shipping fees.
Item Special Note
Now retired to Concord, Massahusetts, Bergman was the Town of Provincetown's longest serving town manager.
