It was my first visit in the National Museum and I was amazed by the art made by one of the famous artist in our country. This Spolarium is an overwhelming art when I first saw it, it is huge and it is full of emotions.
Juan Luna Y Novacio
Family Portraits and Domestic Scenes in Paris
One thing that caught my attention when I saw this portrait is that, this kid looks like “Scarlet Snow”. Kidding aside, when I saw this portrait I feel comfort, because being a kid means you’re free to do whatever you want and you don’t need to be stressed out on various things.
Juan Luna Y Novicio
Japanese Scenes 1896
When I saw this portrait I feel relaxed because I remembered when I was riding a boat before and the lake is very calm it gives good vibes and all I can feel is positivity.
A View of Manila 1940
This portrait shows how fast the time changes. Infrastructure, vehicles, train system and growing population is what we can see now in Manila. It is very different compared to what Manila looks like before.
Hilarion Asunción Y Eloriaga
Portrait of a Mother and Daughter
Nothing can break a mother and daughter bond, this portrait reminds me of my relationship with my mom since she is always there to guide and support me.
Tausug Princess 1951
This portrait of a princess reminds me of my first AESTHET activity since I picked this photo and on the spot I relate it to my self . It becomes significant to me in a way that this is one of a well-known princess in our country.
Vicente Silva Manansala
Maria Clara 1959
She’s one of the famous character in the book of Noli Me Tangere. This portrait reminds me that now a days women are not that innocent compared to the time of Maria Clara because women empowerment has grown to our society and they have the voice to reach out.
As I looked at these drawings, I’ve realized that everything is being detailed and those landscapes reminds me more about the views that we have in our province.
