iMAGES: World War II sketches by Fernando C. Amorsolo
Nothing says Filipino Art more than an Amorsolo piece (though, the same could easily be said about anime-fan-drawings). Known for depicting idyllic scenes of provincial everyday life, he merges here the beauty of the medium with the horrors of war.
These Amorsolo sketches show us his mastery of the form. Looking at these now, it’s too bad he never got into comics.
