Visual Diary: National Museum of Fine Arts, Philippines

I don’t know much about art. The only people that have opened my eyes about art are Tricia Gosingitan, she loves goings to museums when traveling, and T.O.P from Big Bang, he BUYS artworks all the time. I didn’t understand what they hype was about. Imagine my surprise when I went to the National Museum of Fine Arts and LOVED it.

The National Museum operates the National Museum of Fine Arts, National Museum of Anthropology, National Museum of Natural History, and National Planetarium, all located in the vicinity of Rizal Park. –Wikipedia

We only had the chance to visit the National Museum of Fine Arts this time but I’m already planning to visit the National Museum of Natural History next time. I hope you enjoy this little visual diary and it encourages you to visit this gem in the center of Manila. 🙂

I wish you could see this in person and see every detail.

Gallery XII (SPC Hall)

Drawings of Fernando C. Amorsolo

This has to be my favorite. Fernando Amorsolo is beyond words. Even his sketches are artworks on its own.
