"(..)   He obtained his diploma at the National Higher School of Fine Arts in Paris, where he studied between 1892 and 1895(..) Attracted to painting from his early childhood, Philippe Mourani traveled to Rome at the age of seventeen and worked there under Bertone. In 1901, he settled in Paris, becoming a disciple of Jean-Paul Laurens.
