JOSE HONORATO LOZANO: FILIPINAS 1847, art coffe table book

Carino, Jose Maria A. JOSE HONORATO LOZANO: FILIPINAS 1847. Ars Mundi, Philippinae, 2002, hardcover, with dust jacket, new, with 286 pages, measures 11 1/2 by 12 inches. This is a very rare copy of a book on the famous 19th century artist Lozano. This is the first full monograph on painter and 19th century visual chronicler Jose Honorato Lozano, known as the major proponent of the unique art form called letras y figuras. In six parts, this book gathers most of his known and newly discovered artwords and attempts to piece together the very scarce information about his personal life. The book is bilingual with side-by-side text in English and Spanish. The book is new and in fine condition.
