Fisherman at Sunset

1955

Oil on canvas

85.5 x 55 cm (34 x 22 in)

Quick Overview

The orange of dusk paints the sky, clouds colored in soft pastel hues. They serve as the backdrop to the fishermen preparing to set sail in the receding tide for what may be their last trip of the day. Beyond the reclaimed shores, a dark storm gathers, ominously breaking the sunlight and obscuring the seafarers' way. Nonetheless the men push their boat off the sandbank. National Artist Fernando Amorsolo did more than just create picturesque scenes of Filipino life through his masterful strokes of the brush; he presented a people and their values - each perfect form imbued with dignity. We see here then the fishermen as embodiments of determination indomitable spirits charging forward in spite of the storms of circumstance.
