Printmaker Thom O’Connor was born in Detroit but has invested much of his productive life in Albany, NY. We are fortunate to have two individual prints in the collection, as well as this folio of ten. All are representative of his work in the 1960s, which tend to have been mystical portraits (in this case, quite literally) etched at an intimate scale. They make an interesting comparison with the similar etchings of artist Robert Marx.
