“Mr. Jorge B. Vargas, the designated Mayor of Greater Manila by President Quezon back in 1942, was an ardent client and devoted friend of Amorsolo. Aside from having his own portrait done he commissioned Amorsolo a variety of paintings with subjects ranging from family and friends’ portraits to views of residences, landscapes and seascapes, from war scenes and historical events to nude studies. Mr. Vargas had been so close a friend to Amorsolo that he would even confide to the artist his personal problems.” The Nature of the Collection 1F Galleries Exhibition runs until June 15, 2019 --- Source: Lazo, Sylvia Amorsolo et al.
