Leon auction countdown: These works by Filipino masters start at no higher than Php 140K

Artworks for stocking stuffers? Why not? These pieces are surprisingly within your budget    
ANCX Staff | Nov 25 2020

There is an artwork for every spending capacity at the León Gallery Kingly Treasures Auction 2020–one just needs to know where to look. There are pieces that begin in the millions, yes, but there are also gems that won’t exactly break the bank—and will have you taking home something you absolutely love. 

Like the artworks in this list, a good part of which are from Filipino masters. There’s a watercolor landscape by Mang Enteng Manansala, an exuberant still life from Malang, and a Joya pastel on paper work of a woman in a lovingly rendered traditional Filipino dress. 

Anyone who receives a piece from the list below will surely have something to be merry about this season.
