Agnes Weinrich (1873-1946)

Agnes Weinrich was an early and important American female modernist who organized and directed the New York Society of Women Painters in the 1920s, the first painter's association in America for women. In addition, she played an integral role in the development of early modernist ideas in the small artistic community of Provincetown, Massachusetts.

While living in Paris, Weinrich studied closely with Gleizes, a pioneer in the field of Cubism, and with Charles Hawthorne and Blanche Lazelle in Provincetown.
