The Ateneo Art Gallery presents a survey of original fine prints and drawings 
derived mainly from its permanent collection. "From Rembrandt to Ruiz: 
Approaches to the Human Form" explores human representation through four 
centuries of graphic art -- from works of a political and religious nature to 
those imbued with personal insights and purely aesthetic concerns. 

Distinguishing value systems reflected in the art and culture of the times, the 
show brings together engravings, etchings, lithographs, pencils and inks on 
paper, and laser prints by important international and local master draftsmen. 
Highlights include Rembrandt van Rijn's "Descent from the Cross" 
(1654), "Disparate Matrimonial (No.7, Los Proverbios)" by Francisco Goya, 
Edouard Manet's "Boy Blowing Bubbles", Pablo Picasso's "Le chef d'oeuvre 
inconnu" (ca. 1931), "Studies for the portrait of Fernando Zobel" (ca. 1956) by 
Arturo Luz, and "Globocop" (1991) by Jose Tence Ruiz. 

The Ateneo Art Gallery is at the Ground Floor, Rizal Library, Ateneo de Manila 
University, Loyola Heights, Quezon City. Museum hours: 8 am to 5 pm, Monday to 
Friday; 8 am to12 nn, Saturday; closed on Sundays and holidays. Admission is 
free. For inquiries, please contact 426-6001, extension 4160.##
