Philippe Robert

Switzerland / 1881 - 1930 / wikipedia
Jean Philippe Edouard Robert (born April 30, 1881 in Le Ried-sur-Bienne, † June 22, 1930 in Meienried); Swiss painter.

Philippe Robert was the son of Paul Robert, who - like his grandfather Aurèle Robert, his great-uncle Léopold Robert and his brothers Théophile Robert and Paul-André Robert - was also a painter.

In 1905, Robert dropped his studies in theology in Geneva, Lausanne and Berlin and decided to devote himself entirely to painting. Between 1905 and 1907 he toured Germany, Holland and France, later - between 1920 and 1924 - he visited England, Greece and Egypt.

In the course of his career, Robert dealt with landscape and wall painting. In 1923, for example, he designed the waiting room at the Biel train station. Robert also painted numerous pictures of Jura and Alpine flowers and autumn leaves.
