I dropped by at the historic Camalig Restaurant recently to pay visit to Marc Nepomuceno. Of course, this website is the main topic of the day.
After getting the information I want, I went straight to Galleria Olivia at the restaurant’s mezzanine. I was very happy to share a few moments with the art masters, even in the replicas of their brushes’ contours and colours.
The works of Carlos V. Francisco (1912-1969), Jose Dans (1805-ca 1870), Simon Flores y de la Rosa (1839-1904), Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo (1853-1913), Juan Luna (1857-1899), Fernando C Amorsolo (1892-1972), Vicente S Manansala (1910-1981), Hernando R Ocampo (1911-1976), among others, are on exhibit.
What a heartwarming delight. A Portfolio of the Philippine Art Masterpieces, the exhibit is a brilliant idea for Camalig. I hope to visit again to feast my eyes anew with such eloquence and excellence of these masterpieces. And of course, over a Bovine Divine pizza too!
Also included, but not part of the portfolio, are three charcoals by Amanda L Henson-Nepomuceno (1895-1983) as a student at the Colegio de Sta. Catalina in Manila.
