Philipp Andreas Kilian

Philipp Kilian (1628 in Augsburg – 1693 in Augsburg), was a German Baroque engraver.

According to Houbraken he engraved the portrait of Johann Heinrich Ross which Roos’s teacher Barent Graat sent him when he was writing his Schouburgh. Kilian made the engraving for Joachim von Sandrart, whose Teutsche Academie he illustrated.

He was the son of the engraver Wolfgang Kilian and brother to Bartholomaus. Besides engraving Sandrart’s portrait, he made engravings after paintings by Karel Skreta, Philippe de Champaigne and Johann Carl Loth.
