Paoay Church by Fernando Amorsolo
Fernando Amorsolo’s mastery of light and color in his oil paintings shows vividly in this pre-war artwork that he produced during the height of his artistic career.
Visit the National Museum of the Philippines after the Lenten Holidays to view this painting, also in public view for the first time ever!
On the 50th death anniversary of The Grand Old Man of Philippine Arts, the National Museum opens a special exhibition of his select artworks at the Museum Foundation of the Philippines Hall (Gallery X), National Museum of Fine Arts.
Admission is free and walk-in visitors are accepted.
