Framed original watercolour painting of pheasants in the snow. Signed by the artist, Philip Rickman in the lower right corner. Framed with museum glass.
Philip Rickman was born in 1891 and later died in 1982. He was a British watercolour artist who had an interest in birds which led him to study in both Paris and London.
It was through his passion for bird art that he came to know another great bird artist, George Edward Lodge. He gave Rickman much advice and introduced him to the artwork of Archibald Thorburn. Philip Rickman was then influenced by Thorburn’s technique which is rather evident in his paintings of waterfowl and gamebirds.
In 1920 Philip Rickman held his first exhibition at the Greatorex Gallery in Bond Street, London. After this his talents were recognised by ‘The Field’ followed by many other sporting publications. He then later exhibited through Embletons and The Tryon Gallery.
Rickman also illustrated and published several books and many of his pictures have passed through London’s top auction houses. Some of his artworks can also be found in museums and many important private collections.
