FERNANDO C. AMORSOLO ART FOUNDATION
Conceptualized and formed by the Amorsolo children, the Fernando C.
Amorsolo Art Foundation was incorporated on February 3, 2003. Dedicated to
the preservation of the artist's legacy, the Foundation counts among its
goals the promotion of the Maestro's unique style and the propagation of his
artistic vision. Alarmed by the prevalence of numerous forgeries of the
artist's works, the children initially sought to form a body that would
uphold the integrity of the Amorsolo name by primarily cataloguing ad
authenticating the artist's works. Subsequently fueled by a strong desire
to honor their father's memory, the Foundation's goals have evolved into
more extended objectives. These include endeavors that strive not only to
preserve and document the first Filipino National Artist's heritage but also
to propagate his vision to uphold and immortalize Filipino culture through
visual arts. Consistent with the group's goals, the Foundation promotes
humanitarian causes as well.
The Fernando C. Amorsolo Art Foundation seeks to preserve a national
heritage through the conservation and promotion of the works of the
foremost Filipino painter, Fernando C. Amorsolo.
