At the newly refurbished YGC Gallery, look for Multiples, a selection of fine prints from the museum collection. Made by Filipino and other Asian printmakers, the prints are created from a variety of techniques. Among the methods presented are lithography, silkscreen, embossing, sketching, and woodcut.


In Focus: Fernando Amorsolo's Mango Harvest
Mango Harvest
Fernando Amorsolo (National Artist, 1892-1972)
Oil on canvas
64 x 90 cm

Amorsolo had a hands-on approach to nature, painting outdoors and capturing the splendor of color under the tropical sunlight. He was also the first to extensively portray traditional Filipino customs and occupations such as fishing, planting rice, harvesting fruit, washing laundry, and cooking.

Fernando Amorsolo's Mango Harvest celebrates the rural life and majesty of the sunny Filipino landscape. In this work, Amorsolo idealizes the peasant, situating them in a country idyll with plentiful harvests.

Market Scene, which is just a few of the works in the Yuchengco Museum collection, is currently on view at the Masters Gallery at the ground floor.
