Images of Nation: Vicente Manansala as Social Realist
An exhibition in celebration of the birth centenary of National Artist Vicente Manansala, 'Images of Nation: Vicente Manansala as Social Realist' showcases the artist's works rendered with a social realist sensibility. In contrast to his brilliant landscapes and genre paintings done in his signature transparent Cubism, the paintings featured in the exhibition shows a somber and darker temper and palette, similar to his iconic 'Madonna of the Slums', which captures the grim postwar realities in the country.
