She studied with French Cubist, Albert Gleizes, in Berlin, Paris and Rome and
with Charles Hawthorne and Blanch Lazzell in Provincetown. She

first women's painters association in America) in the 1920s, and was a
founder of the Modernist Movement at the Provincetown Artists
Association. She exhibited in museums in Washington DC, Boston, New
York City, etc. Her work is highly sought after because she was one of
the earliest American Modernist artists. She lived with the Karl Knaths' in

Biography from ACME Fine Art
Agnes Weinrich 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 L'hote, 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.
