Juan Luna may not have drawn a single botanical plate, or participated in the cover design contest for Flora de Filipinas (the 19th-century masterwork) as written by Prof.
Ambeth R. Ocampo in his column. But Luna nonetheless painted these wistful floral details in España y Filipinas’ empyrean stairway.
Our featured artist Ea Torrado’s live performance of ‘Filipinas’ on the 20th of February will feature this very same empyrean stairway, all built and ready for this very inspired interpretation. So better come in early at 6PM.
