Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Painter, muralist. Born in Breslau, Germany on March 20, 1897. Philipp studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin, with Oskar Kokoschka in Dresden, and Yves Brayer in Paris. A Jew, he fled Nazi Germany in the late 1930s and settled in San Francisco. Having once considered a career as a singer, he became a patron of the San Francisco Opera and painted many portraits of its stars. He also painted atmospheric landscapes and a mural in Temple House of Congregation Beth Sholom. The West German government honored him with a retrospective exhibition in Berlin about 1971. Philipp painted until a few weeks before his death in San Francisco on May 17, 1982. Exh: GGIE, 1939; De Young Museum, 1943 (solo); Calif.
