Project Tags

view all


This sub-project aims to organize genealogical data on notable visual artists who are Filipino or have Filipino lineage. Artists are classified under the primary medium they express their art.

This project includes artists acclaimed for their contribution to Philippine culture as National Artists, those who have won international fame in visual arts and design, and those who have unique perspectives depicted in art. Find more at the master project page, Families of the Philippines.

Image: The Spoliarium is a painting by Filipino artist Juan Luna. The painting currently hangs in the main gallery at the ground floor of the National Museum of the Philippines, and is the first work of art that greets visitors upon entry into the museum.
