Passages: Celebrating the Artistic Journeys of Betsy Westendorp is both the title of a retrospective exhibition and this publication presented by the Metropolitan Museum of Manila. It gathers the entire scope of the artist’s illustrious career from portraits done in Madrid and Manila, her landscapes of the Philippine terrain, the sunsets of Manila Bay, her colorful celebration of Philippine flora, especially the various species of the native orchid, and the grand symphonic cloudscapes across Philippine skies. Over one hundred artworks form the retrospective exhibition.
