Asian Cultural Council Art Auction 2020
The Asian Cultural Council Philippines (ACCP) Foundation opens its 20th anniversary celebration this year with the ACC Art Auction on February 22, 2020 at Leon Gallery.
An important endeavor that solidly bonds ACCP and Jaime De Leon of the premiere auction house Leon Gallery, the event is expected to feature an array of impressive works topped by a 1930 Fabian Dela Rosa painting in oil “Dos Hermanas” (Two Sisters),” a gift of fabled artist Fabian de la Rosa to Rafael Palma, journalist, patriot, and President of the University of the Philippines and Ang Kiukok’s 2001 oil piece “Still Life (Window Series)”. Other works by modern and contemporary masters such as Hidalgo, Manansala, Malang, Bencab, Sanso, Lao Lianben and National Artist and first ACC Grantee for visual arts Jose Joya, are also featured as part of the more than 150 pieces that are up for bidding. In the same auction two years ago, it was Joya’s iconic “Space Transfiguration” (1959) that fetched a record-sale. Also included are items of historical significance, finest antiques, distinct furniture pieces and other objets‘d art that are impeccably rare and sought after.
