Initially much influenced by the example of the Expressionist painter Oscar Kokoschka, Philipson’s work remained in touch with continental and American models. While never completely abstract, the motifs he uses, especially nudes, animals and birds, all take their part in a drama that is taking place autonomously within the picture and without any direct reference to any real or imagined events in the world outside.
