(First of Two Volumes)
Christiane L. de la Paz
Artes de las Filipinas welcomed the year 2022 with its latest publication, The Philippine Art Book, a two-volume sourcebook of Filipino artists. An A-Z guide to more than a thousand artists, this is a good resource for readers interested in the works and biographies of Filipino artists. It covers the lives, works and artistic activities of acclaimed, obscure and contemporary Filipino artists who have contributed to the flowering of Philippine art history for the past nearly five centuries. It is designed to add interest and understanding to the reader’s visits to exhibitions and museums as well as aid the study of past and contemporary art. More importantly, the writing provides updates to reflect new scholarship, revised articles, bibliographies, and corrections of past research to all classes of students and users for self-education or as a starting point for further investigation.
