Woman in Ecstasy about 1955
  • Scottish Art
As the 1950s progressed Philipson became increasingly ambitious in his choice of subject matter and in the scale and technical execution of his paintings. 'Woman in Ecstasy' represents a bold departure from his previous figure compositions. Its slashing brushwork may have been influenced by the work of the Dutch-American abstract painter Willem de Kooning.
