Francisco, better known as Botong, was responsible forrevolutionising the fine arts landscape of the Philippines. Hedeparted from the prevailing style of the Amorsolo academic andlaunched the modernist movement with his fellow founders of theModern Triumvirate, Victorio Edades and Galo Ocampo. Their realistdepictions were divergent to the idealised romantic norms then.Magpupukot (Pulling in the net) is an excellent example of hisrealist renderings. Painting the lives of the fishing community was one of Botong'sfavourite subjects. Angono, his hometown where he was based, was afishing village. There were enough sources of inspiration readilyavailable to him. He was especially affected by communal life andtheir resident values and customs. The scene in Magpupukot (Pullingin the net) is a hearty depiction of fishermen reeling in the netsto avail the catch of the day. Botong filled the entire canvasmaking the spatial composition crowded and busy with details,stretching the visual to each end of the canvas. The clear fluidlines lead the eyes to every expression, taut muscle and sinewyfibre of the fishermen. The artist's empathy for the fishermen andpassion to accurately represent can be seen and felt by strokesswept by the paintbrush and the coloured energy of the scene. Thesolid execution of the bold and brilliant colours echos theendurance, vigour and infectious dynamism of the work. One canalmost feel the weight of the net. With a keen appreciation of folkvalues, the artist created great synergy between the vivid coloursand kinetic rhythms of the fishermen, almost literally moving thework to life, symbolising the intoxicating energy of the pioneerswho contributed to the wealth of the current nation. Botong is renowned for his large scale mural paintings which weredrawn from the very same source as the ones for Magpupukot (Pullingin the net) - the people. The customs and traditions held close tothe hearts of the Filipino people have become a vehicle for him andmade accessible his style to create a refreshing new imagery. Thisaffinity with historicity interested him to research on theFilipino legacy and also became apt material for him to draw from.Because his inspirations lie with the people, his works werevaluable in their nationalistic inclinations. Botong's magnificentmurals have become an icon of Filipino art history. His visualenactments celebrate the artistic roots of his culture, his imagesimpressed by the ardent dedication and colour of the Filipinopeople. This work was shown in a retrospective exhibition for the artist,Botong: Alay at Alaala, at the Cultural Center of the Philippinesin 17 November 1989 - 25 January 1990.
