The book is a celebration of the life and works of one of the best, most sought after, and most admired Filipino painters.

Accompanying Roces’ narrative are 300 paintings by Anita Magsaysay-Ho, some of which are annotated by the painter herself with comments on technique or the story behind the painting.
