Robert Philipp, painter and etcher was born February 2nd, 1895 in New York City. He studied at the Art Students’ League with Frank Vincent DuMond and George Bridgman from 1910 to 1914. He also studied at the National Academy of Design with Volk and Maynard from 1914 to 1917. Philipp’s greatest critic, Philipp himself, said “The excitement of creating a picture never leaves me. It becomes more and more a delirium. Sometimes while painting, I awaken to the fact that I have gone through a subconscious experience. I find myself painting the visible, yet with a subjectiveness which changes reality into something transferred from an inner eye. I find myself using patterns, lines, and dimensions that I see in the visible and that come through the invisible. I know that my reality is not realism but my perspective of it, and a commentary upon it. The past, the present, and the future, become a blend. Only the essences within nature are the catalysts and the combinations that draw from me the reflections or them,-of me, and through me, as an instrument.” (Robert Philipp, 1970) Philipp painted a wide range of subjects that included genre, portraits, Holland, Paris, bars, nudes, flowers and coasts. His style employed an often-unusual use of color that although different, seemed intriguing and appropriate to the composition. He favored subjects of leisure often depicting scenes such as ladies in a balcony enjoying a show, girls in interiors reading, a night out, a stroll in the park... Although often overlooked by art scholars today, Philipp was universally appreciated during his lifetime. He conveyed his subjects with a certain sensitivity and understanding to which his viewers could relate. Philipp taught at the High Museum of Art, 1946; University of Illinois, 1940 Art Students’ League of New York and the National Academy of design. He was also elected an associate of the national Academy and later full Academician National Academy of Design. He won numerous awards during his life including third Hallgarten prize, 1922; prizes from the National Academy of Design, 1947 and 1951; Laguna Beach Art Association prize; medal prize, Art Institute of Chicago, 1936; IBM, 1939; bronze medal, Allied Artists of America, 1958 and others. His work is included in numerous important collections throughout the country. Robert Philipp passed away in 1981.
