A veritable hero in his hometown Angono, Botong Francisco devoted his life to art. After spending the 1930s immersed in graphic art and modernism, Botong embarked on large-scale mural painting for which he became known.

This lavish art book contains the richest array of Botong’s masterpieces, whether in large or small scale. The vast selection of his most important paintings, sketches, and costume designs is supplemented by vintage photographs, documents, and film stills from over 30 public and private collections.

The texts include an illustrated biography and essays by prominent art scholars offering interpretations of Botong’s life and art. One could not ask for a more comprehensive study of Botong’s body of work.’
