Philip Kappel was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1901, and graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, in 1924.  For many years he was employed as an artist by the major steamship lines in the United States, such as, the Columbia Line, American Export Lines, and the Cuba Mail Line. His artwork became a record of shipping, past and present, forming a fascinating collection of the ships and men who sailed them. His technique showed the hand of an illustrator's pen and ink, bold strokes were used for emphasis and clarity of design. At other times he used combinations of light and dark, forming silhouettes, which he learned from the marine artist, Philip Little.  Not only was Kappel recognized for his graphic artwork, but also as an authority on Chinese porcelain, Japanese art, and American and English antiques.
