     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. 

     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.
