Lebensdaten: 1877 - 1959
Zu Leben und Werk: Wiener Maler und Graphiker - An Austrian painter and printmaker, Robert Philippi studied art in his native Graz before opening a studio in Vienna. During the early twentieth century, Philippi exhibited his paintings, woodcuts and etchings in Vienna, Prague, Munich, Cologne and Berlin. Philippi was associated first with Austrian Secessionism and later turned to German Expressionism (c. 1915), particularly in his woodcuts and etchings. Torichte Jungfrau is a striking example of Philippi's Expressionist technique and style.
Of particular interest is the fact that Philippi was also a noted teacher of printmaking techniques and that in 1914 one of his private students was none other than Egon Schiele (1890-1918). Schiele studied both the art of the woodcut and etching from Philippi during this year.
