Walter J. Phillips gained worldwide recognition for his engaging woodblock prints. His success as a printmaker was due to his extraordinary perspective, uncompromising design, masterful craftsmanship, and use of dramatic silhouettes and luminous color. Additionally, he loved the medium, writing, “no black is so rich and ‘fat’ as the black in a wood-cut, and no white is so pure. For graphic boldness, directness and simplicity the wood-cut is supreme.”
Phillips produced only a few floral prints, including the four colorful woodcuts reproduced in this notecard set.
