Anita Magsaysay-Ho was a pioneering artist and one of the first modernists in the Philippines. She studied at the College of Fine Arts of the University of the Philippines under Fernando Amorsolo and Fabian de la Rosa, two classical painters who influenced her early works. She later developed a style more closely related to modernist ideas, which she achieved by accentuating stylisation, design, and rhythm, rather than a realistic depiction of the visible world. She is known for her genre scenes featuring angular figures, predominantly of women painted in tempera or oils.
