It would be wonderful if they can make a list of all the paintings of the Asuncion brothers and have an exhibit maybe at the CCP. Not too many Filipinos are familiar with their works despite Capitan Ting’s mastery of the art.
Mariano Asuncion’s painting of Sta Escolastica painted in 1876 for Escolastica delos Reyes daughter of Crisanto delos Reyes a wealthy binondo merchant he was later arrested and exiled by the Spanish Colonial Government in the Philippines because of his involvement in the 1872 Cavite Mutiny the painting was later acquired by Manoling Morato then he sold it to the Asis Gallery in San Juan which in turn sold it to Mariano Lao head of the Stanpak group of companies a member of the Araneta Family saw the painting and told Mariano Lao that the Painting belongs to the Araneta family and tried to buy it back but they could not agree on the price of the painting
