Private Collection, Ontario


Fernando Amorsolo was one of the most important Filipino painters of the 20th century. After studying art in his native country, he had the opportunity to travel internationally, gaining further exposure to European artists, and contemporary Spanish masters such as Joaquin Sorolla Bastida. Following his travels, he returned to the Philippines and set up a professional studio. It was then that he gained national renown, becoming recognized for his bright depictions of pastoral scenes portraying the people and the country he knew and loved so well.

Amorsolo’s success meant that his works were in high demand. In order to meet his prospective patrons’ demands, the artist photographed his works and created a catalogue from which they could choose their desired scene. This Pastoral Scene is a fine example of a catalogue subject, selected by a patron – other similar examples of this composition exist. The artist has created a fictionalized scene of a few figures taking a break from harvesting rice beneath a tree (perhaps a mango tree), cooking a meal over a small fire. This work shows the artist’s strength in portraying nostalgic scenes that were desired by both national and international collectors alike.
