Biography Philip Steegman
Philip Steegman (1903-1952).
A portrait painter, sculptor, writer and illustrator, he was the younger brother of the writer on art and architecture John Steegman. His father, Dr. Edward John Steegmann, of Nottingham, U.K., was a bacteriologist in the Royal Navy.
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"
