Known for the empowering of women thru her strong depiction of the rustic Filipina, Anita Magsaysay-Ho’s art has become highly regarded. Anita’s works often feature women going about their laborious days, capturing their very resilience and fortitude — so elegantly putting on display the beauty and character of the Filipina.
In this pair of prints from 1990, Anita depicts women as they weave and sow — the iconic modernist’s rendition of which, akin to that of her cast of women. Of note in the work is the clarity of the print, more so with it being the first one pressed among the lot.
