This is a very nice Otis Philbrick woodblock print titled "Self Portrait". Otis Philbrick was one of the founders of the Boston Printmakers in 1947.
His wife, Margaret Philbrick was a highly skilled printmaker, doing etchings, engravings and serigraphs. Her works were sometimes detailed realistic gems and sometimes wonderfully dancing colorful silkscreens. They had their studio on Dover Road.
Otis was fascinated by bee hives, doing both prints and oil studies of them and did wonderful portraits. Their son, Otis Philbrick Jr., was both an artist and I believe a chemist, and a graduate of MIT. He did color photography that he actually developed himself. The colors were stunning and compositions, gorgeous. Otis Sr.’s daughter, Ann Philbrick Hall, did marvelous sculptures and drawings of animals. She was very active in Marshfield where she lived until her death in the ’90s.
