Fernando Amorsolo (1892–1972)

Sunrise

1958

Oil on canvas

53.3 x 39.4 cm (21 x 15 1/2 in)

Quick Overview

Painting one of his most recognized scenes—fishing boats leaving for sea at dawn—National Artist Fernando Amorsolo was adept in presenting the plight of the working class Filipino in a utopian light. While this particular composition does not contain any human figures, the intensity of the sunrise glistening onto the blue sea and the two steadfast boats can be seen as metaphors for the virtue, integrity, and hard work of the fishermen, whose absence interestingly amplifies their presence.
