National Artist Cesar Legaspi spent his life devoted to his passion. He studied for a term at the College of Fine Arts, University of the Philippines before travelling to Europe where he imbibed the techniques of the modernists, particularly the cubists Georges Braques and Pablo Picasso. Upon his return to the Philippines, his first solo exhibit was at the Luz Gallery in 1963 which at that time was the best platform for up-and-coming artists. Legaspi was part of the group known as the Neo-Realists, whose members sought to re-present reality through the effective manipulation of the formal elements of art. This rare work dating from the 1970s shows the fluid movement of biomorphic shapes tightly enmeshed as if in a dance, the analogous color scheme of orange, yellow, and green showing the confidence of a fecund imagination.
