Jose S. Pardo: In Line With Modernism
One of the ’13 Moderns’, Jose S. Pardo (b.1916-2002) belonged to the first generation of modernist painters in the Philippines. A full-time architect and dedicated teacher, his body of works span over six decades and include drawings, paintings, editorial cartoons, and poetry. Donated by the Pardo family, these works - notably, the Carabao series, Marikit and Nude series, Vendors series, and Plants series - are now in the permanent collection of the Ateneo Art Gallery. Celebrating Jose S. Pardo’s contribution to modern Philippine art, this exhibition catalog includes an essay by Victoria T. Herrera.
