Dear Mr. Roger Boulet,
I have come across this coloured woodblock of “Mary at the Lake 1920” in the attic of my uncle. I am trying to figure out the providence of the artwork. Your name comes out in a stamp saying 121/150. Is this an original W. J Phillips or, as curator, did you reproduce this as part of an exhibit?
Thank you for your time,

I have no idea what exactly you are saying and how “my name comes out in a stamp saying 121/150.” The print may have been reproduced but certainly not as a part of an exhibit that I know of. I would have to see an image of what you are describing here to offer any opinion on the matter.
