Given the limitation of recorded information about women artists, this book attests to the fact that there were many women artists in the nineteenth century albeit very little is known about them...The study is...a gateway that will allow others to pursue further knowledge that could provide enlightenment about women's lives...(and provide) the present with knowledge that will help in the understanding of culture and society. It was exciting to monitor the progress of this historical investigation and more exciting to find women who quietly created works of art, using their creative energies in making their lives aesthetic and meaningful...certainly a great contribution to the body of knowledge on Philippine women artists. - Brenda V. Fajardo, Ph.D.
