Packed in a Trunk: The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson


Every family has its secrets. The mysterious life of Edith Lake Wilkinson might still be only whispered about if not for the curiosity of her great-niece, Jane Anderson. In 1924, Edith was suddenly institutionalized by an embezzling family attorney, and not until the ’60s was a startling discovery made of her luminous paintings in long-abandoned trunks. Surrounded by these paintings growing up, and with Edith’s influence clear in her own artwork, Anderson is moved to piece together a life unknown. A rich and textured picture of Edith’s early life emerges: lesbian, artist, and brilliant innovator of “white line” printmaking while a member of the Provincetown art colony. Directed by Michelle Boyaner (A FINISHED LIFE, SLGFF 2008).
