Flap copy

Walter J. Phillips (Canadian, b. England, 18841963) was already a critically acclaimed watercolorist by the time he immigrated to Winnipeg, Canada, in 1913. Once in Canada, he moved on to woodblock printing, the medium for which he would gain worldwide recognition. Phillips's success as a printmaker was due to his extraordinary perspective, uncompromising design, masterful craftsmanship, and use of dramatic silhouettes and luminous color. In this monograph, Phillips's place in the forefront of the Arts and Crafts movement in North America is explored in detail by noted period scholar Nancy E. Green, while essays by two of the artist's family members provide unique perspectives on Phillips's life and work. In addition, quotes by the artist concerning his work accompany many of the reproductions.
