 AGNES WEINRICH 

Agnes Weinrich (1873 - 1946) worked as a painter and woodblock printer in New York City and Provincetown. She came from a prosperous Iowa farm family, an advantage which later allowed her to make contact with the New York art world.  She was a good friend of Peggy Guggenheim.

 

Weinrich studied art in Berlin from 1900-03, in Paris with Andre Lhote, and later at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Art Students League, and in Provincetown with Charles Hawthorne. She led a group of young artists in Provincetown who experimented with Cubism. Their work led, ultimately, to a split in the Provincetown Art Association between the conservatives and radicals in 1927. Following her sister Helen's marriage in 1922 to artist Karl Knaths, Agnes became a major influence on his work and introduced him into the New York art scene. The three of them lived together for the rest of Weinrich's life.
