American painter Marjorie Phillips was the niece of painter brothers [Gifford] and [Reynolds Beal]. She began drawing seriously at the age of five, encouraged to become an artist by her maternal uncles. With her husband Duncan Phillips she visited Europe, especially France in 1923, which sharpened her awareness of the possibilities inherent in impressionism and post-impressionism, as she studied Cézanne and Renior. Phillips painted primarily landscapes and still life works. She and her husband collected artworks and after the death of her husband, Marjorie served as Associate Director of the Phillips Collection, and eventually became director.
