Sir Robin Philipson

Woman in Ecstasy

About this artwork

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.
