Sansó to hold authentication session Feb. 24
In support of National Arts Month, Juvenal Sansó, one of the country’s most renowned visual artists belonging to the Modernist School of Philippine art, will hold his biannual authentication session on Feb. 24, 3-7 p.m. at Galerie Joaquin Main.
The session is Sanso’s way of meeting his collectors and assuring them directly of the authenticity of the artworks in their possession. It is also the artist’s way of showing his thanks to people who have expressed appreciation for his art and a way to help in the campaign against fakes and forgeries.
During the sessions, the artist not only attests to the authenticity of the artwork but can give some information on the style, background and influences of his various artworks to the collector. Picture-taking sessions with the collector are held.
Sansó is a Presidential Medal of Merit Awardee of the Philippine Republic. He has received the King’s Cross of Isabella from Spain and a chevalier knighthood from France.
Galerie Joaquin is at 371 P. Guevarra Street and Montessori Lane at Addition Hills in San Juan. Call 7239418; visit www.galeriejoaquin.com or www.juvenalsanso.com
