The Spectacular Mid-Year Auction 2018
Fernando Amorsolo’s “Under the Mango Tree”, (Lot 19) which once belonged to the Conde de Peracamps, achieved a world record for an Amorsolo at P46,720,000, besting a previous international record by several millions. It is believed by Amorsolo’s daughter, Sylvia A. Lazo, to be the first of its kind of this lyrical theme, since it was created in 1931.
The very rare “At River’s Bend” by Lorenzo Guerrero (Lot 46), believed to be ca. 1868 or the year that he would travel down the Pasig to court his wife, fetched P17,520,000.
Roberto Chabet and his protegé Marciano Galang each scored benchmarks. Chabet’s “Blind Window” (1964) in the Texas School Book Depositary, from where Lee Harvey Oswald felled JFK, brought in P9,344,000. Marciano “Mars” Galang was one of the first 13 Artists to be named by Chabet in 1970 and his sparely elegant abstract “Morning Calm” (1979) established a record P2,102,400.
Florencio B. Concepcion’s masterful Abstract (2003) accomplished a world record of P2,336,000.
The Arnedo Table (1880s) attained a total P7,600,000.
Lastly, José Rizal’s Untitled Bas-Relief “The Filipino” (Ca. 1892-1896) reaped P17,500,000.
