León Gallery will hold the auction “Magnificent September Auction 2014” on Sept. 13 at the Eurovilla 1, Rufino corner Legazpi Streets, Legazpi Village, Makati City.
To be auctioned off are paintings, furniture and objet d’art from the distinguished collections of Alfonso T. Ongpin, Anselmo Trinidad, Luis Ma. Araneta, Angel and Carmen Guerrero Nakpil, Alejandro and Irene V. Roces, and Tony and Cez Gutierrez.
Among the highlights of the auction are “Crack in the Hull,” a 2001 tour de force by Ronald Ventura, and Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera’s “Sabel in San Andres Bukid,” an exhibited work from his first solo exhibition at Gallery Indigo in 1966.
Also part of the sale is the Paras-Lazatin Cabinet, a balayong and narra masterpiece that is perhaps the only one of its kind in the country, and a six-volume folio (1880 Manila edition) of the “Flora de Filipinas” by Fray Manuel Blanco.
