Fernando Amorsolo (1892-1972)

Untitled (Woman in Pink)

1926

Oil on canvas

32 x 29 cm (12 1/2 x 15 3/4 in)

Quick Overview

A rare early work by the maestro, this oil on wood is a window into the articulate virtuosity of one the country’s most revered artists. The piece itself is a boceto, and probably was painted in preparation for another work, making the piece an invaluable resource into the art of Amorsolo.
Created in the the 1920s in the cusp of his career as a fully pronounced painter, Amorsolo structured his muse, building form and shape, treating his subject as an intricate prism that reflects the light that only his vision can capture, a testament to the classical training he had received and perfected. The unnamed woman wipes her brow, resting from the heat that bares upon her farm work, concaves and convex plains of her form and the brushwork behind her catching the rays of the afternoon sun and adding a matte brilliance to work.
