Biography from Sotheby's London, New Bond Street:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

In the summer of 1963, Philipson traveled to the University of Colorado at Boulder to act as 'visiting artist'.  He became interested in American Indian culture and made a trip to New Mexico during which the mission churches in some of the villages, built very simply of mud (adobe) or logs and grass, left a strong impression on him: 'the altar ... had no gold, only yellow paint and simple, modest drawing, but it was majestic, magnificent.'

Over the following years he sought to recreate the primitive dignity of such churches in a whole series of Mexican altarpieces and interiors, using different colors and media to capture their extraordinary grandeur.
