Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    acquired directly from the artist in Manila by the grandparents of the present owner

    Purchased by George Pope Shannon, PhD (1892-1964), the grandfather of the present owner. Dr. Shannon lived in the Philippines from 1918 to 1919, and from about 1926 to 1929, during which time he was the head of the English department at the University of the Philippines, where Dr. Shannon and Fernando Amorsolo were colleagues. Dr. Shannon, in the English textbook English in Action which he edited, specifically acknowledged Amorsolo for permission to use images of the artist's drawings in its 1929 Philippine edition.
