Waikato Landscape

Margot Leonie Luise Philips
Production date
Circa 1960
German-born Jewish artist Margot Philips (1902 – 1988) benefitted from the support and friendship of Kirikiriroa Hamilton’s Janet Paul. Philips, a recent arrival to Kirikiriroa Hamilton, attended informal sketching sessions at the Pauls’ home, where a group of friends would draw still lifes and the scenes through the Pauls’ window.

This oil painting of a vase in front of a white framed window with farmland beyond, may be inspired by the view through the Pauls' window.

Philips eventually launched a career as one of the Waikato’s leading twentieth-century artists. Philips first experimented with landscape painting in the 1950s, and then rose in prominence through the 1960s and 1970s.
