In point of fact, Weinrich was Knaths’ acknowledged teacher when it came to modern art. She had traveled and studied in France and Germany - a contrast to stay-at-home Knaths. Like Blanche Lazzell, Weinrich studied with Albert Gleizes, the French Cubist painter, who influenced so many of the Provincetown colony. Weinrich, Lazzell and Lucy L’Engle were all founding members of the . . . . . . Agnes Weinrich, (1873-1946) was born in Burlington, Iowa in 1873.
