Why this is a
Masterpiece

Influenced by Post-Impressionism, it presents a situation in which a painting is created within the representation itself, thus affording viewers to experience both the process, with the painter sketching his model, and the object, which is the artifact of art. It departs from the lyricism of the academic painters of the early American Period and introduces distortion as an artistic virtue.

History of the Object
A work of National Artist Victorio Edades who is esteemed as a forebearer of Philippine modern art in the Philippines. In 1928, it was exhibited at his germinal homecoming exhibition which provoked discussion between modernism and conservatism in Philippine art.
