About this title:

Synopsis: Before Juan Luna or Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo were winning acclaim in the salons of Europe, there was a Filipino master in Tondo who earned his reputation among Spaniards and countrymen alike. Damian Domingo painted official portraits and religious tableaux, and his albums of colorful tipos del pais immortalized the diverse costumes and lifestyles of the early nineteenth-century Philippines. All these bore his distinctly Filipino style, drawn from experience as a self-taught artist--experience which led to a career as a pioneering art teacher and director of the first Philippine art academy. Now, for the first time, Damian Domingo and his milieu are brought to life in a full-length, lavishly illustrated art book. The artist's surviving masterpieces are reproduced in lush detail, along with selected works from his contemporaries, descendants, and successors in the art world. With engaging prose and exhaustive research--including Domingo's last will and testament and rediscovered self-portrait--Dr. Luciano PR Santiago sheds new light on a man who laid the foundations of Western art in the Philippines.

About the Author: A psychiatrist by profession with a degree from the University of the Philippines, College of Medicine, and years of professional practice in the United States and Manila, Dr. Luciano PR Santiago has devoted much time over the years to archival research. His work has provided the material for his numerous books and articles on Philippine art, history, culture, genealogy and other subjects. He was the recipient of a Toyota International Research Grant, which enabled him to conduct his researches in the archives of Spain and the Vatican. His accolades and awards include the National Book Award for History and for Art, the Premio Manuel Bernabe for History, the Pedro Villasenor Award for Genealogy, and the Catholic Press Award, among others. He is also a distinguished medical writer, having been published in local and foreign scholarly journals and received the Wendell Muncie Prize for Distinguished Writing in Psychiatry. His other books and writings include The Hidden Light: The First Filipino Priests, The Art of Ancestor Hunting in the Philippines (1990), Stars of Peace: The Talangpaz Sisters (2001), Laying the Foundations: Kapampamangan Pioneers in the Philippine Church 1592-2001 (2002), To Love and To Suffer: The Development of the Religious Congregations for Women in the Philippines (2005, and Fabian de la Rosa and His Times (2007).
