Biography Philipp Bauknecht
Philipp Bauknecht was a painter and was engaged in applied arts, as well. He first grew up in Barcelona and, for health reasons, later immigrated from Southern Germany to Davos, Switzerland. There he met painters like Cuno Amiet and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, who moved there later.
Kirchner provided his friend Bauknecht with opportunities to exhibit in Germany, as well, and personally purchased works by him. Through his Dutch wife Ada van Blommestein, whom Bauknecht met in Davos and married in 1925, his works made their way to the Netherlands following his early death. There they were first made accessible to the public again in 1961, through the efforts of Joop Smid, at his Monet Gallery in Amsterdam.
