Why this is a
Masterpiece

An early genre in Philippine painting that may serve as a transition from the miniaturist school of homegrown portraitists of the nineteenth century to the idyllic tableaux of the American Period academic masters. Mother and daughter are caught feeding chickens in a commonplace setting. The scene is depicted with sharp attention to the details of face and costume and with a diposition to enliven the quiet instance with dynamic though subtle movement.

History of the Object
The painting was transferred to the National Museum from Malacanan Palace. The palace is the official residence of the President of the Republic of the Philippines.
