Read Time:51 Second

SOUTH EAST ASIA’S ART IS BOOMING

 

GABRIEL CUSTODIO, OIL ON CANVAS, SIGNED AND DATED 1956 , 90 x 128 cm



WHEN A PIECE OF ART IS GOOD QUALITY IT SCREAMS TO BE HAD. THAT WAS THE CASE OF THE PAINTING BY GABRIEL CUSTODIO WHEN I ACQUIRED IT SOME THIRTY YEARS AGO. THE ARTIST WAS LITTLE KNOWN THEN BUT THE ART AND CONTENT OF THE PAINTING OOZED QUALITY AND SHOUTED PHILIPPINES.

A MARKET PLACE IN PHILIPPINES, POSSIBLY MANILA, IS A SUPERB OIL ON CANVAS. IN SUPREME CONDITION, IN ORIGINAL FRAME AND OF HIGHLY DESIRABLE SIZE 90 X 128 CM AND WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF FIGURES TO BOOST ITS QUALITY IT IS A MUSEUM QUALITY PAINTING, IT IS THE SOCIAL LIFE OF THE PHILIPPINES OF THE 1950S AS THE DATE ON THE PAINTING INDICATES..

THE RECENT AUCTIONS OF THE WORK OF THE ARTIST ARE INDEED POSITIVE AND THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT FOR AN ARTIST WHO WAS A STUDENT OF AMORSOLO AND PAINTED IN THE SAME STYLE AS THE MASTER!!
