Asuncion Paintings at the National Museum of Art

The Bangko Sentral Ng Pilipinas has loaned its collection of the Asuncion Artists’ Paintings to the National Museum of Art and are now available for viewing until December 2018.

This is a sensation as it includes the portrait of our patriarch Ming Mong Lo, also known us Jose Molo, a Chinese immigrant whose daughter, Maria de La Paz, became the wife of Mariano Asuncion, Sr. Ming Mong Lo is the common ancestor of the Paterno and Asuncion families of today. This portrait was done by Severino Flavier Pablo (1805- 1875), a contemporary of our own Justiniano Asuncion (1816-1896).

Here is the pdf. list  artworks to be showcased in this exhibition as provided to us by REGINA MERCEDES C. CRUZ ,Special Services Group Corporate Affairs Office

      Dear Ed,

      Enclosed is the list of Asuncion paintings the BSP lent to the National Museum including that of Ming Mong Lo by Severino Flavier Pablo, Jr. The paintings are on view at the National Museum of Art, the old Legislative building.
