During a trip to England in 1924, Phillips spent time with William Giles and Yoshijiro Urushibara, two important practitioners of the color woodcut medium. Urushibara taught him much about the printing process and the various Japanese papers.

Porteuses de Fagots (Women Carrying Bundles of Sticks)
CAMILLE PISSARRO
French, (1830-1903)
Lithograph, 1896, Delteil/Cailac 153, edition 24. 9 x 11 3/4 in. Signed, numbered and titled in violet pencil. This is a superb, rich impression printed on chine appliqué. The margins are full and the condition is fine other than for two old hinges, verso, at top. This is one of Pissarro's largest and most beautiful lithographs. This work was published in 1896 for Les Temps Nouveaux and there was an additional unsigned "de luxe" printing of twenty impressions. This impression is from the earlier printing of twenty-four signed and numbered impressions, six of which were printed on chine appliqué. (There were also seven artist's proofs). Our impression is from the celebrated collection of Henri M. Petiet (Lugt 5031).

Pilchard Boats, Cornwall -  PLATT

Pilchard Boats, Cornwall
JOHN PLATT
British, (1886-1967)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1922, Chapman 10, projected edition of 100. 6 1/2 x 12 1/2 in. Signed, titled and numbered. This is a fine, atmospheric impression of this uncommon print. The margins are modest but measuring 1/4 to 5/8 in. and this could well be the original, untrimmed sheet. The condition is good. (The sheet has been professionally backed with thin Japanese paper due to some thinning on the verso.) The recorded edition mentioned in the catalogue is seventy-eight even though this impression is numbered 21 from the edition of 100. Pilchard fishing was a thriving industry in Cornwall from around 1750 to 1880.

Woodcut printed in colors, 1930, Chapman 19, projected edition of 150. 9 5/8 x 14 1/16 in. Signed, titled and numbered (LXII) in pencil. Here we have a fine impression with full margins. The condition is very good apart from small old hinges at the four corners, verso, and a tiny wrinkle in the lower right corner of the sheet. The catalogue states that only sixty-four impressions are recorded hence this is not a common print. The Vlvata is the longest river within the Czech Republic. In the background at right is Prague Castle. Construction started in 870 and was completed in 1929!

Snow in Springtime
JOHN PLATT
British, (1886-1967)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1919-1920, Chapman 6, recorded edition of 71. 9 3/4 x 11 3/4 in. Signed and dated in the block. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This is an especially fine impression with superb, fresh colors. The margins are full and the condition is fine other than for small old hinges at the top corners. (The projected edition here was 100.) "John Platt's colour woodcuts mark a short but important phase in British printmaking; a period when an external and foreign influence stimulated a new decorative and inventive approach to the use of color." (Hilary Chapman, from page 6 of the catalogue raisonné, 1999). This influence, of course, was the art of Japan and Japanese prints in particular. The models for this composition also relate to Platt's sketches for the "Giant Stride." His sisters are on the swing and they are being observed by Platt's daughter and son.
