Biography from Tobin Reese Fine Art:
Antonio Blanco was born in Manila to Catalonian parents who had come to the Philippines during the Spanish-American War. He was educated at the American Central School in Manila and went on to study at the National Academy of Art in New York under Sidney Dickinson. Dickinson’s style would influence Blanco’s portraits of the human form, in particular, his preference for painting the nude, female body.

Blanco traveled extensively abroad before he finally settled in Bali in 1952. There he set up a studio in Campuan. At his studio in Campuan he would go on to create his most famous paintings of the beautiful women of Bali. Shortly after his death in 1999 his studio in Campuan was turned into a museum commemorating Antonio Blanco’s artwork, as well as the Balinese culture he adored.

Among the awards Blanco received are the Tiffany Fellowship from the United States, New York Cities Cannon Prize, and the Honorable Mention at the Honolulu Academy of Art. Blanco was also awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Philosophy from the National College in Windsor, Canada.

Well-known works by Blanco include the lithograph The Virgin of Bali, and paintings such as My Castle of Dreams (1962), The Cinderella of Bali (1964), Eve’s Apple is Still Intact (1967), and Odalisque (1969).
