indiohistorian:

Anita Magsaysay-Ho (1914-2012), the ‘female Amorsolo’ of Philippine Art. She loved to depict the everyday life of Filipino women.
She once said:

“In my works, I always celebrate the women of the Philippines. I regard them with deep admiration and they continue to inspire me – their movements and gestures, their expressions of happiness and frustration, their diligence and shortcomings, their joy of living. I know very well  the strength, hard work and quiet dignity of Philippine women, for after all, I am one of them.”

It was not loving art in itself as many artists are guilty of doing. It is art with a purpose, with a mission. She may have passed away, but Filipino artists can still learn a lot from her life.
