     A trio of epic artworks of the three Masters of Philippine art: Bencab, Zobel and Joya.  These etchings showcases the different moods of the Filipino artistry in one lot. <br>

     In Siesta hour, Bencab playfully portrays the native Filipina Mestizas in an afternoon idle aura.  Zobel’s El Jardin, is a cherishment of the periods he was able to work non-stop, as he shared to the Pfeufers in November 1960: “The present is good, the future sounds better.”. While, Joya drives a mystifying vibe as portrayed by his talismanic symbolism in his oeuvre Premature Disc. 2.<br>
