Description
Martin Erich Philipp keeps the background of this image monochromatic in order to allow the rich, bright colors of the macaws' feathers to pop forward - an exemplary work by an artist whose life mostly remains a mystery. The Austrian-born Philipp worked in the U.S. and is best known for his color woodcuts of birds and floral subjects. Aside from this, little is found. Follow the biography above to learn more about this talented printmaker and find a link to a catalogue of his works being compiled by print enthusiast The Linosaurus.
