  • Provenance:
    collection of Albert F. Tegen, thereafter by descent

    Albert F. Tegen was President and Chairman of the Board of General Public Utilities Corporation of New York, the parent company of Manila Electric and Railroad Company (MERALCO), during the 1950s. An ardent admirer of Amorsolo's paintings, Tegen obtained works by Amorsolo during his many visits to Manila both on behalf of collector-friends in the United States, and to add to his personal collection exclusively of Amorsolo's works, among which was a commissioned portrait of Tegen's daughter, Nancy. It was Mr. Tegen's understanding that the artist's first wife was the model for the young woman depicted in the current lot.
    For more information on the relationship between Tegen and Amorsolo, see the article dated November 7, 1958 and entitled "Paintings and the Patron" in Weekly Women's Magazine, which includes a photograph showing a handshake between Tegen and Amorsolo.
