Kagampan (translation: Fullness of Time) is 244 x 152 centimeters in dimension. It is a realistic painting in oil on canvas made by Renato Habulan.[1]

Visuals

Drawn in large scope are figures of workers and peasants engaged in basic production, as producers of the nation's wealth. Social realist Habulan defined the various workers by their working clothes and their tools. The figures expresses dignity and self-confidence, and are symbolic of the Filipinos’ coming of age.[1][2]

History and context

Kagampan was done in the last years of the Marcos regime at the peak of the people's revolution. It was featured in full color on the cover of a national magazine and censured by the highest government authorities because of its protest quality. It belongs to the Salvador Lim Collection.[1]
