John Phillip was a Scottish painter of the Victorian era, who gained notoriety for his depictions of the Spanish way of life despite his origin.

Phillip came from poor conditions, only by the economic help of Baron Panmure, who recognized his artistic talent, he could take lessons in London from the British portrait painter Thomas Musgrave Joy and later study at the Royal Academy of Arts. Here he met the painter Richard Dadd and became, with William Hogarth, David Wilkie and others, part of its artists' association "The Clique", which championed academic painting. Like Wilkie, Phillip began painting Scottish peasants and religious families early in his career. When he moved to Seville in Spain for health reasons, the impressions came over him and he started to paint typical scenes and themes for Spain - street scenes like bullfighting. His special inspiration came from Spanish artists Diego Velázquez and Bartolomé Esteban Murillo. Thus, in 1854, "A letter writer, Sevilla", a work that strongly reminded of the group of artists of the Pre-Raphaelites and stood in contrast to the attitudes of the "clique". Phillip's inspiration was so great that he invited his fellow artists to travel to Spain, and the portrait and history painter Edwin Long followed his example. Phillips himself traveled to the Iberian Peninsula in 1851, 1856 and 1860. Phillip's style expanded after each trip to Spain and became more picturesque, it created the works "The early career of Murillo" and "La Gloria", which shows a Spanish wake. "The early career of Murillo" was auctioned in 2003 for over 150,000 USD. Phillip also received the order for the wedding of the German Emperor Friedrich III. and to portray his wife Victoria. In general, the Spanish royal family was said to have been very fond of Phillip, so that the members often gave each other as a Christmas gifts paintings by the artist. In 1866 he left London for the last time, in Rome and Florence he studied the master of the Italian High Renaissance Titian.

Phillip was married to Richard Dadd's sister, who, like her brother, was struggling with mental illness in old age. Phillip himself died in a stroke in 1867 when he wanted to visit his friend and painter William Powell Frith. Today, many of his works can be found in museums, the National Gallery in London, the National Gallery of Scotland and the Museo del Prado in Madrid. The self portrait "The Evil Eye" (1859) is in the Hospitalfield House art center, along with other portraits of the "clique". Because of his love for Spain he is often called "Spanish Phillip". © Meisterdrucke
