FERNANDO AMORSOLO (1892–1972)

Man and Carabao Near Ruins at Sunset

1948

Oil on canvas

31.4 x 47.7 cm (12 3/8 x 18 13/16 in)

Quick Overview

The year 1948 saw the Philippines still recovering from the harrowing experience of the Second World War. Showing the passing of time and how life moved on, artists like Fernando Amorsolo drew inspiration from the starkly poetic justaposition, depicting scenes of rural beauty without turning a blind eye to the damages wrought on the country. Here, one sees rubble - ruins of an old time better forgotten - but there is also life—a new home, a day about to dawn, and a new purpose for broken things. It is about beauty that persists, and a life worth sustaining.
