Anita Magsaysay-Ho: In Praise of Women (HB)



By Alfredo Roces
Published by The Crucible Worshop, ©2005.



Anita Magsaysay-Ho: In Praise of Women is a celebration of the life and works of one of the best, most sought Filipino painters. Alfredo Roces’ inquiry into Anita Magsaysay Ho’s life and how it has shaped her artworks is at once lucid and compassionate. His elegant, poetic prose charts the development of an artist from her childhood vacations in bucolic Zambales and early education in UP to her independent struggle in the US to perfect her craft and her pained longing for her homeland — and weaves all these intricately with his incisive studies of her paintings. Accompanying Roces’ narrative are over 300 paintings by Anita Magsaysay-Ho, some of which are annotated by the painter herself with comments on technique or the story behind the painting.
