Biography   Philip Steegman


Philip Steegman (1903-1952).

He was in India in the late 1930s, where he painted and wrote a book titled Indian Ink.

About his book it was said in the New York Times Book Review Section, February 18, 1940:

Philip Steegman's India Ink opens wide avenues of the imagination.  This is not just "another book about India."  It is the highly individual impressionistic picture of that strange subcontinent seen through the occidental eyes of a modern painter"   ...  Displaying 750 of 2363 characters.
