William Greenbaum ~ Etchings, Lithographs & Woodcuts
What is an "original" print? How can you tell an original from a reproduction? How are etchings and lithographs and woodcuts different from each other, and how can you tell one from the other? These are some of the questions William Greenbaum will be addressing. Mr. Greebaum will be bringing an artist’s carved woodblock and an old etching plate to help illustrate his talk about how various kinds of prints are made and how to tell the differences between them. "
William Greenbaum has been buying, selling and appraising original prints for exactly 50 years as of this year, 2013. While his business has always been called William Greenbaum Fine Prints, and his specialty has been etchings, lithographs, woodcuts and other original graphics, he has also helped clients with drawings, watercolors and occasional oil paintings. He first moved to Cape Ann in 1963.

Many of our resident’s are recovering from various types of surgical procedures or illness, and the patience and support our Certified Nursing Assistants provide is truly remarkable. We encourage everyone who knows a Certified Nursing Assistant to take the time to thank them for all they do.
