Default painting by artist Jean Philippe

I have a watercolor of a vase of flowers by Jean Philippe. Stamp on the back is marked Serie 1334. Nr. 3, Stehli Freres, Editeurs, Zurich. I don't know anything about the artist or the painting. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I also have a watercolour of a vase of flowers (anenome) signed by Jean Phillipe. The painting is framed and has a number written on the reverse label. The framer was Arthur Charles Savage of Birmingham and the number is 6835. The painting belonged to an aunt who is now deceased.

I have a print "Poinsettias" by J. Philippe #1363 marked with a stamp from Stehli Freres, Zurich and am curious as well about the artist. I have had no luck in finding information.

Default Artist Jean Philippe

I too have the Jean Philippe vase with flowers and Zurich reference. Think we have the same subject matter. Hope that someone knows about this artist as my WEB search does not offer any information.

I also have a watercolour of a vase of flowers with a yellow bowl next to it. It was given to my mother in 1939 by her parents. I'd love to know more about the artist too.

I've red that Jean Phillipe is the same man as A.Marc and that his real name is the well-known painter Nicolas Markovitch. He used the name J. Phillipe only for his litho's (made by Stehli Freres Zurich) with flowers and the name A. Marc for the others litho's (most buildings/mountains etc.). His real name he used for the real aquarels.

I confirm. Only lithos with flowers were signed J.Philippe, lanscapes were
signed Marc or A.Marc (he works a lot with Stehli), and originals watercolors with his name Nicolas Markovitch.

Default A. Marc

I just removed what I thought was an old watercolor from my late uncle's eclectic Massachusetts collection only to find it was a print. Below the frame it has "A. Marc, pinx." "No. 1266 Harbour at Gloucester, Mass. (Cape Ann)" "Printed in Switzerland - Imprime en Suisse". The picture itself is signed "Marc." The mounting board had faded, but it is so nicely done, and we are nostalgic for this harbor scene of fishing boats--we will restore its framing.

I just purchased a watercolour of houses on Church Street in Wroxton, Oxfordshire. The signature is Marc and it is underlined. My mother also has a watercolour by the same artist and it is a 16th century house in Keddington (Kent). I am wondering if this is the same artist who signs as A. Marc and also signed Nicolas Markovitch.

This is very nice to find others looking for information about J. Phillipe.
I too would like to know more about the person/persons/group of artists that produced the pantings/prints, and Stehli Freres, Editeurs, Zurich.

I grew up with a print of yellow and orange narcissus in a green vase, on our living room wall. The vase is on a low modern table next to a small yellow box with a red top. A large window fills the back of the picture.
With both of my parents gone, I had the faded matt replaced, and I am refurbishing the original wooden frame.
The picture was framed in Grand Rapids Michigan, USA, in ... the early 1950's
My print is marked; Serie 1325 No. 3

I see no unique print number, so I am guessing that these copyrighted prints were mass produced by Stehli Freres. I'm also guessing that these similar paintings of flowers in a vase on a table were Nocholas Markovitch's bread and butter work. This does not, in any way, deminish my affection for this charming picture that holds so many fond memories for me.

Delighted to find this site as I have enjoyed and wondered about my print. I have considered reframing it as presently it is not shown to its greatest advantage.

I have a print by J Philippe, inherited from my parents. It was a wedding gift to them in 1943.

The print show red flowers in a green glass vase with a blue/green globe-shaped bowl beside the vase. There seems to be a print number but it is obscured by the edge of the matt. On the back on the picture, the label indicates that the print was purchased at the Tresure Shop, 111 King St W, Brockville, ON, Can.

Default Print by Jean Phillipe

It is interesting to find this information on Jean Phillipe. After returning to the USA in 2003 from living in Ireland for many years, I was given a little framed print of zinnias in a vase by a stranger on the street where I live (it's a long story but as it turned out this guy's name was Angel). It was signed by Jean Phillipe and was so charming, I cleaned it up and hung it on the wall.

Several years later, a friend who had been living in Austin, TX and who had stored a few of my possessions during the years I was overseas, delivered these items to me in California on her way to her new home in Washington state. Among them was a print that I bought at a flea market in the 70's that I always loved. After removing it from the now dirty and dusty frame, I discovered that this lovely vase of cattelaya orchids was also painted by the same Jean Phillipe! It seems odd that I acquired these prints randomly, unwittingly and more than 20 years apart. Now I feel a strange affinity with this mystery man, Jean Phillipe. The bit of research I've done indicates that he lived from 1894-1965 and these prints seem to have been painted in the late 20's or 30's. It would be great to know more about him, but it's also very likely that he has faded into obscurity. Any info would be appreciated.

I too have a growing affintiy with this artist after my husband bought a beautiful watercolour for me in an old junk shop a few years ago. It's a lake scene painted somewhere in Switzerland or Italy I suspect. Further investigation lead me to what looks to be a reputable vintage art dealer in the US and they very kindly posted a reply with an updated bio from their website. I think this might help to unravel the mystery a bit.item # 140361522799, A. MARC, N. MARKOVITCH Vintage Print OBERENGADIN, SWISS
