The 1930s in Prints: A Gift to Kansas City from The Woodcut Society presented by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City MO

A growing number of artists turned to carving blocks of wood or linoleum to create prints during the 1930s. An affordable medium, relief printmaking was appealing as the Great Depression took an economic and emotional toll globally. Building on the increased prominence of woodcuts, Kansas City resident Alfred Fowler formed The Woodcut Society in 1932. Works produced by the Society’s international group of artists represented social, political, and formal concerns of the decade.
