Summary expansion
Like a road map, the sheet is folded into thirds both ways, creating nine panels printed on both sides. Many of Edades' paintings, principally those from the 1970s and 1980s, are reproduced in tones of brown, and include landscapes, portraits of native people, family portraits of his wife Jean and daughter Joan, and also a self-portrait. There is also a brief biographical sketch of Edades' life; a reflection on the artist's work, "An artist in context" by Irene Santiago; and a brief sketch of Edades' artistic philosophy, "There is no reality without nature." After studying fine arts and architecture at the University of Washington in Seattle, Edades returned to the Philippines in 1928. The distorted figures, rough masses, and bold Cesannesque strokes of the 26 paintings he exhibited at the Philippine Columbian Club in Manila in 1929 created a furor in the art world, a controversy that spanned two decades
