In celebration, in praise of artist Anita Magsaysay-Ho; 97

To know Anita is to love her.

Aside from her immense talent, artist Anita Magsaysay-Ho was a gentle, unassuming, generous and kind lady. She was not only a great artist but also a great person. Those who had the privilege of knowing her deeply mourn her passing on Saturday. She was 97.

As editor of the book, “In Praise of Women” by Alfredo Roces, I had to interview Magsaysay-Ho many times over. For most Mondays from February to June 2005, I spent a good part of the day with her in her seaside condominium unit. Still blessed with good health and excellent memory then, she gifted me and my colleague Din Din Araneta with spontaneous and unstructured commentaries on a good number of her paintings.

As our sessions with her progressed, we got to  know  more of  her.  When  asked for comments on people who faked her works and signed her name, she said, “Maybe they need the money.”

When asked what we should tell people who paid top  prices for  what were passed off as authentic  Anitas, she simply said, “Please  tell them they are good art pieces,  but they are not by me.”
