De Rougemont, Philippe (1891-1965)

French artist Philippe De Rougemont is predominantly known for his spirited figures and portraits in oil.

Hailing from Lille in France, he soon moved to Paris to study at the Académie Delecluse - and while living in the French capital, met his future wife Sigrid Wahlström who was also undertaking artistic training. By 1919, the pair had settled in Stockholm, to establish a studio and raise a family. Here, Philippe became known for producing rhythmically-charged enigmatic portraits - including several for Swedish dignitaries, and he’s represented in several public collections.


Primarily in France and Sweden.
