FERNANDO AMORSOLO (1892-1972)
Of all the Filipino artists past and present, none is a popular or as enduring as Fernando Amorsolo (1892-1972). This is understable, since his themes, mostly genre scenes of a bygone era, are close to the hearts of many Filipinos. Amorsolo was an excellent sketch artist as well as a peerless master of light and color. His signature technique was to backlight his subjects, gently shading them with nuanced color tones and haloing them with an incandescent golden glow. Romanticism suffuses his sun-dappled, nostalgic paintings of peasants planting, village maidens bathing in pristine rivers, and common folk going about their daily chores.
