Description

A large lithograph of Provincetown, Massachusetts from around 1925. The artist did not indicate an edition size and it is presumed to be small. The simple shapes of the Cape Cod homes rise above a sea wall and the beach in the foreground.

Virginia Berresford was a Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts painter, printmaker and gallery owner working in a modernist style related to Cubism and French artist Fernand Leger. She studied in the US with Charles Martin at Columbia University (he had studied with Arthur Dow and taught Georgia O'Keeffe) and at the Art Students League in New York. She studied in Paris, France at the Academie Moderne with Leger and Amédée Ozenfant.

Berresford exhibited at the Bernheim-Jeune Gallery, Paris, France; The New Gallery, New York City, the Whitney Museum of Modern Art, the 1939 World's Fair, and the Pennsylvania Academy.
