Diosdado Magno Lorenzo: Art Rebel to Legend
This monograph written by Alice Guillermo pays tribute to Diosdado Magno Lorenzo (1906-1984), one of the pioneering Modernists in the Philippines. He studied at the Academia de Bellas Artes in Manila as well as in academies in Rome and Madrid. He also founded the first formal art school in Hong Kong before returning to the Philippines before WWII. Upon his return, he joined other Modernist artists Victorio Edades, Galo B. Ocampo and Carlos V. Francisco to form the Atelier of Modern Art, the first effort at organizing artists in the country. He is known for his paintings in different genres and media, but most of his imagery is based on the countryside of San Isidro, Nueva Ecija, where he was born.
