CHild Birth 110.5 x 147.3 cm. 1949. Paulino Que Collection.

This work in oil on canvas by Romeo Tabuena focuses a woman in the severe pain of childbirth as she struggles to deliver the baby in her womb, with the manghihilot or midwife who massages her hurling stomach. This is an unusual style of painting that depicts folk quality in realistic situation and setting.
