Philip von Schantz

Swedish 1928- 1998

 

Philip von Schantz was a Swedish artist born in Norrköping. He studied, among other things for the artists Otte Sköld and André Lhote. He has exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions both in Sweden and abroad and is represented on a number of museums around the world. Von Schantz has been head of the Museum of Modern Art and worked as a teacher at the Academy of Art among others. In its creation, he is perhaps best known for its delicate, stylized often depicting bears, vases and vegetables. There is a quiet calm in von Schantz imagery that is sometimes disrupted by an unexpected element.

Philip von Schantz began painting at Otte Sköld 1950. In 1951 he stayed in Paris with a short spell at André Lhote . Between 1952 and 1958 he studied at the Art Academy in Stockholm . Philip von Schantz was ever since its debut in the early 1950s constantly acclaimed as a painter and graphic artist. During the 1970s, he became very popular with the public when he made pictures of berries in large piles , and fruit and potatoes in old boxes and enamel buckets. His still life showed the smallest detail and very lifelike representations, where " every wear " could be counted. The objects he had often grown yourself or found in nature.

In 1988 he moved into his new studio in Gåsvik at Väddö channel. A new development of his shots came in the late 1980s, where his pots and cups, sometimes with ducks, created refined puffs to the viewer. After some years the landscape became integrated in the images, often simple red barns on the wide landscapes, still life and landscape painting at the same time! Later developed a landscape painting by a geometric play of shapes of buildings and rooftops.

His images were often ambiguous and characteristic of his way to work was the use of a variant of enpunktsperspektivet , where perspective lines ran parallel and picture " spread out " across the surface. Which also contributed to the identity of the images was that the scale of his still life was always 1:1. Philip von Schantz was a professor of graphic arts at the Art Academy 1963-1973 and director of the Museum of Modern Art from 1973 to 1977. Between 1972-1988 he was Chairman of the Association of Graphic Arts . Between 1987 and 1993 he was Chairman of the Royal Academy of Art . 1991 and 1992 he illustrated Nobel diploma Ronald Coase , Georges Charpak , and Gary S. Becker. Philip von Schantz was at his death at age 70 a known and much loved artist. In 2000, acclaimed the swedish Post von Schantz through two stamps with his motives.
