Catalogue Note

Dr. Anton Philips was an eclectic art collector, initiating his acquisition of art in his early twenties. By his sixties, he had assembled one of the most extraordinary private collections of nineteenth and twentieth century art, old masters, furniture and pottery in the Netherlands. He became a prominent figure in the art world, mingling with distinguished specialists and loaning pieces from his collection to exhibitions in Europe.
