(May 30, 1892 – April 26, 1972) Of all the Filipino artists past and present, none is a popular or as enduring as Fernando Amorsolo (1892-1972). This is understandable, since his themes, mostly genre scenes of a bygone era, are close to the hearts of many Filipinos. Amorsolo was an excellent sketch artist as well as a peerless master of light and color. His signature technique was to backlight his subjects, gently shading them with nuanced color tones and haloing them with an incandescent golden glow. Romanticism suffuses his sun-dappled, nostalgic paintings of peasants planting, village maidens bathing in pristine rivers, and common folk going about their daily chores.

Edades was the pioneer in modernism in the Philippine art scene. In fact, he is known as the Father of Modern Philippine Painting. A lot of his paintings portrayed the hardships of the working class, using dark and somber colors and bold strokes. Edades joined the University of Santo Tomas in the 1930’s where he stayed on for three decades and became dean of its Department of Architecture. It was he who introduced the Liberal Arts program which led to a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts, a first in the Philippines since art was only taught in vocational schools then. Edades later formed the Triumvirate of Modern Art with Carlos V. Francisco and Galo B. Ocampo, after they produced a mural for the lobby of the Capitol Theater on Escolta Street. This began the growth of mural painting in the Philippines. Slide 62: 13 MODERNS

In addition, he formed the group of Neo-Realists together with Romeo Tabuena and Anita Magsaysay-Ho. Manansala developed transparent cubism and his works were done mostly in the figurative mode, reflecting the society and the local environment.

A proponent of modern art in the country, Legaspi developed cubism in the Philippine context. He was also identified as one of the Thirteen Moderns, a group of modernists led by Victorio C. Edades whose works went against the conservative academic art of that period.
