This subtly dignified painting of a fruit-seller with her arm
raised and body off centre, and the partial view of the
standing onlooker, possibly a buyer, are features that
will constantly recur in Zalameda’ search for effects of
spontaneity and informality.
Zalameda occupies an important place in 20th century
Filipino painting as an artist willing to make bold aesthetic
interpretations cum statements of the rustic and romantic
through his work.
