A traveler himself, multi-faceted artist Romulo Galicano draws inspiration from his sojourns in Europe, especially in France. He renders a series of scenes in Giverny, including the late Impressionist master Claude Monet’s famous house and water and flower gardens. The beautiful blooms and foliage depicted in vibrant colors and brush strokes in this painting display ’s refined impressionistic style and masterful use of oil as medium. Rich imagery is achieved through a composition that pays homage to this Cebuano artist’s favored style and the French impressionists who influenced his art. Part of the Dimasalang group, Galicano is one of the Filipino artists who champions impressionism and figurative art in the country.
