In the minds of many old - time lovers of art and advocates of culture, the name Vicente Manansala brings back fond memories of remarkable sessions at the artist’s studio - home out in Binangonan, Rizal, more than thirty kilometers away from Metro Manila. Admirers of the artist would come trickling in after lunch hour; and the afternoon would escalate to exhilarating discussions and exchanges of ideas and experience among friends. The featured masterpiece is an oeuvre of a scenery in Binangonan, Rizal depicting a part of the artist’s hometown where he shared his remarkable afternoon with his circle of friends and acquaintances.
