This book is a journey into the challenges and achievements of three Filipino-American watercolorists who set precedents in the development of watercolor in the Filipino-American art communities of New York and New Jersey. It is also about human struggle, persistence better understood by first generation immigrants in this country, and heart-warming public recognition in the quest for the American dream through life-changing passion for art. A scholarly examination of the art and the lives of these unsung heroes and overlooked artists, the book, likewise, incorporates lucid and critical overviews of the histories of watercolor and of Philippine art. Garnished with over 45 full color illustrations, the book ultimately documents Filipino-American contribution to watercolor painting, a first of its kind from this culturally diverse community.
