Provenance: Private Collection, USA Romeo

          Romeo Tabuena painted the impalpable atmosphere rather than the substantial objects within it.

          Tabuena is best known for his works, at times in a vertical format influenced by Chinese painting.  The near monochromatic watercolor landscapes of nipa huts, farmers, and  carabaos are done in an exquisite style, with attenuated figures spread out in large tonal  areas suggesting an early morning fog.
