An era-defining artist known mainly for his delightful costume albums and brilliant religion paintings, Damián Domingo was also the first Filipino master of the portrait, as well as a pioneering art teacher and director of the first Philippine art academy. Significant new data uncovered over the past two decades — including rediscovered portraits and the artist’s last will and testament — paint a clearer picture of Domingo’s life and times, and allow new insight into the artist’s mind as imaged in his works. This book is the first full-length documentary-biography of a Filipino master who came before Luna and Hidalgo.
