25 Teodoro Buenaventura 1863 - 1950 Untitled Signed and dated 1929 (lower right) Oil on canvas 28" x 33" (71.1cm x 83.8cm) P 90,000 Provenance: Private Collection, Makati. Teodoro Buenaventura is considered as one of the early masters of classical realism. In 1899, he opened a school in his home, the Academia de Dibujo y Pintura, where, among those he mentored, was Isidro Ancheta, Jorge Pineda, and Fernando Amorsolo. As a sizable number of his oeuvre was shamefully destroyed during WWII, an early work of this caliber - of beautiful, almost fairly-like maidens lounging by a stream in a forest - comes only once very so often.
