A large oil on canvas painting of a traditional horse-drawn cart of the Philippines, painted in a striking modernist interpretation, signed at lower right by noted contemporary Filipino artist ROGER SAN MIGUEL (1940-). The works measures 24" by 36" and 31" by 43" in its original blue mid-century frame bearing label from the House of Frames, Angeles City, Philippines (about 80 miles northwest of Manila near the old Clark Air Base). The framing suggests an early date for this work, perhaps 1970. San Miguel's work often falls into the Amorsolo traditional style, but the artist is also quite known for his modernist works, an exceptional, extremely large example having brought over $13,000 at auction. San Miguel's works in general have been bringing larger amounts at auctions in Southeast Asia in recent years, compared to the fairly recent past. This work and the framing are in excellent fresh condition.
