Trove: The Coseteng Collection
An accompanying publication of the exhibition Trove: The Coseteng Collection curated by Ramon Villegas and Lisa Guerrero Nakpil at Leon Gallery in 2017, it highlights the works of National Artist H.R. Ocampo from the collection of former Senator Anna Dominique 'Nikki' Coseteng. The collection features sixty-six works on paper, including some rare watercolors and etchings. Also part of the collection are six oil paintings, including the work Votive Forms (1966), which was first exhibited in the Sao Paolo Biennale.
Hernando Ruiz (H.R.) Ocampo (1911-1978) was one of the country’s “Thirteen Moderns,” the modernist movement led by Victorio Edades. Ocampo himself would become the leader of the “Neo-Realists”; a group that included Vicente Manasala and Cesar F. Legaspi.
