Robert Philipp (1895-1981) received his training at the Art Students League with Frank Vincent DuMond and George Bridgman. He studied at the National Academy of Design with Volk and Maynard. As a boy he lived in a world of musical comedies; he spent time in training in music with an eye in the direction of the grand opera stage. He even spent a year or so in a leading role in one of his father's productions. Then he made a decision to abandon the stage and devote himself entirely to painting.  Although often overlooked by art scholars today, Philipp was universally appreciated during his lifetime. He conveyed his subjects with a certain sensitivity and understanding that his viewers could relate to. He was a portrait, figure and still life painter; he painted celebrities, nudes, even landscapes. He often used his wife, Shelby Post, as a model.  Philipp's market has remained strong in both the retail and auction markets fine
