Visuals

This painting shows Narciso Padilla - a lawyer, merchant, ship-owner and regidor of the Royal Audencia, standing beside his four-year old grandson Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo.[1]

Malantic’s miniaturistic finesse gives the portrait an elegant polish. The honest facial features have also made this composition one of the finest examples of portraiture in the Philippines.
