* SIR ROBIN PHILIPSON RA PRSA RSW RGI HRHA DLITT LLD (SCOTTISH 1916 - 1992), ROSE WINDOW oil on canvas, signed verso 100cm x 100cm (39.72 x 39.72 inches) Framed and under glass. Provenance: Private Edinburgh collection. Note: Born in 1916 in Broughton-in-Furness, Sir Robin moved to Scotland in 1930. He studied at Edinburgh College of Art from 1936 to 1940, becoming a lecturer there in 1947. He was a significant and influential presence on the Scottish Art Scene for more than three decades. He had numerous commitments as Head of School of Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art and eventually President of the Royal Scottish Academy. However, he was above all, a practicing painter, who, in spite of the demands upon him was still able to produce throughout the years a distinguished and original body of work. He received many honours throughout his life including being knighted for service to the arts in Scotland in 1976. Philipson's early work predominantly focused on landscapes, still lifes and interiors. Then, late in the 1950s, the artist began to explore two further themes in his work: cathedral exteriors and the rose window. Philipson commented on his paintings of Venetian church interiors: ''What impressed me most about the Venetian churches - San Marco above all - was a sense of their beautifully lit spaces. They gave me a great desire to recreate all their visual aspects simultaneously, taking in their inspired intricate rhythms and richly saturated colour.''

Exhibited London, The Fleming Collection, From Colourists to Contemporary: Still Life Painting from The Fleming Collection, 2006 Show Literature & Catalogue Notes Show Literature & Catalogue Notes Catalogue Note On discussing the poppy paintings, Philipson remarked: 'It was when painting poppies in oils that I decided to change from direct painting to the old method of underpainting and glazing. What attracted me to poppies was their splendour – the sheer power and yet the delicacy of their colour – the cold and warm reds and very subtle translucent lights. I began by modelling their form in whites and a range of neutral colours. When this ‘white’’ stage was quite dry, the strong colours were created by laying thin glazes of pale transparent paint over the top, sometimes up to ten or more on top of the other. Some of the blacks are built up in the same way over a bed of very rich blue or crimson. Working with glazes means that design and colour scheme have to be planned in advance, the forms themselves have to be more precisely determined – effects cannot be produced directly as they can in painting straight onto the canvas.'
