Happy #BookLoversDay! The book Felix Hidalgo & The Generation of 1872 by Alfredo R. Roces is just one of the cool books you can borrow via Lopez Museum and Library’s Membership Program.

Book Description: On Occasion, an artist becomes a character on stage caught up in the rush of events during which a chapter in the history of a nation is played out. Felix Resurreccion was one such artist. Born in Binondo, Manila in 1853, young Felix was a victim of events that culminated in the purge against Reformists in 1872, and as well an active participant in the Nationalist ferment generated by young Ilustrados who gained their tertiary education in Europe in the 1880s. Among his close friends were national martyr José Rizal and the fiery painter Juan Luna. Contrary to current attitudes of contemporary historians who popularized the theory that the Ilustrado “betrayed” the nation to preserve their material status and that the masses were the only true patriots, painter-writer Alfredo Roces presents historical evidence to the contrary. He pieces together narratives of the Ilustrado, shaped by the trauma of 1872, as patriot and nationalist.
