Gilmore (1883-1955) is known for her contributions to the development of the white-line woodcut printmaking technique. Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Gilmore studied at the Art Institute of Chicago from 1903-07 before traveling throughout Europe with her classmate Mildred McMillen and eventually settling in Paris. When World War I broke out she moved to Provincetown, Massachusetts, where she became part of the group of artists championing the new manner of executing woodblocks developed by Bror Julius Olsson Nordfeldt (1878-1955) known as the "Provincetown Printers."
