Legaspi: The Making of a National Artist
A monograph on the life and works of National Artist Cesar Legaspi written by Alfredo Roces. Legaspi (1917-1994) was one of the pioneering Thirteen Moderns who is noted for his adaptation of Cubist principles in painting. His early monochromatic works reflected the trauma of war and the dehumanizing effects of industrialization. His later works are described as more sensuous and expressive through the use of color, rhythmic lines and shapes, transparencies, and gestural movements.
