Cesar Legaspi, awarded National Artist for Visual Arts in 1990, is a pioneer of modern art in the Philippines. He belonged to two artist groups “Thirteen Moderns” and “Neo-realists”, art groups which instrumented the acceptance of modernism in the country when people were used to realism. Legaspi’s style of painting and illustration uses the western approach Cubism, but is of genuine Filipino context which could be traced to his experiences and observance of the Philippines before and after World War I. His paintings are also known for its choice of colors, consistent elements such as the human torso, man at work, and post-war scenes, and themes of struggle and labor. Legaspi created the classic works “Stairway to Heaven”, “Mother and Child”, “Three Musicians” and “Kargador”.
