Authenticity Leon Gallery wishes to thank Mrs. Sylvia Amorsolo-Lazo for confirming the authenticity of this lot.
Probably the smallest artwork done by Amorsolo and perhaps the only one of its kind to survive, this watercolor work that was sent as a postcard with the Philippine stamp surfaced in France. His signature bears "F.C. Amorsolo" which was typical of the master's works before 1920.
