Read Bert Geer Phillips' Biography

Bert Geer Phillips was born in Hudson, New York and trained in fine art at the Art Students’ League in New York City. He was a dedicated artist even as a young man, and constantly sought out new instructors and material in order to hone his talents as a academic realist. He studied at the Julian Academy in Paris, where he met Ernest Blumenschein and J.H. Sharp. Sharp spoke passionately about the landscape and peoples of the New Mexico pueblos, urging the two younger artists to travel to the southwest in order to find natural inspiration for their art.
