Beneath the Image: A Technical Analysis of Sample Works of Fernando Amorsolo

Beneath the Image: A Technical Analysis of Sample Works of Fernando Amorsolo by Ricky Francisco

Fee: Php120.00

Contrary to the belief that science and art are on opposite poles, both fields do come together to generate new knowledge. In the context of a museum such as the Lopez Memorial Museum, the coming together of science and art is in the work of conservation. Another is in technical analysis of artworks. On March 27, Saturday, 2-4 pm, a lecture on a preliminary technical analysis of the works of Fernando Amorsolo will be given by Ricky Francisco, collections management consultant of the Lopez Memorial Museum. The lecture will go into the process of technical analysis and the findings. There is a fee of Php120.00 to attend this lecture.

As collections management consultant and during his internship at the NHB in Singapore, Mr Francisco undertook this using data found in Philippine art history books, and detailed visual examination of the works using the naked eye and equipment such as stereomicroscope, UV and Infrared Photography, of the measurable properties of sample works. By these means, he was able to gain a better understanding of the artist and his techniques.

The Lopez Memorial Museum is at the ground floor, Benpres Building, Exchange Road corner Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. Museum days and hours are Mondays-Saturdays, 8am-5pm, except holidays. For more information, call 6312417 or email admin@lopez- or pezseum@skyinet. net. You may also go to the museum's website www.lopez-museum. org and its blog for information.
