True Philippine culture, this is the theme that composes most of Fernando Amorsolo’s artworks. Rice planting is among those that depicts the real Filipino tradition that is still applicable until the present time.

The painting is set on a rice field wherein farmers, regardless of their gender, are on with their usual work under a bright sunny day. It’s visual weight is light because the colors used were mostly pastel in nature. No dark colors were used to produce a feeling of calm and peace. Even though rice planting is definitely hard work, the painting made it look like a simple work and fine day to be out.

Fernando Cuerto Amorsolo is the very first painter to be given the recognition as the country’s national artist. His work titled “Rice PLanting” which was made in 1922 was one of his most famous works. This was when the Philippines was under the American colonial rule and it is impressive that Amorsolo consistently painted pictures reflecting the true Filipino soul despite the colonization. Although, critics have been claiming that Amorsolo did these to serve as souvenirs to the Americans not withstanding the fact that “Rice planting” became so popular that time that it was used in calendars, brochures etc.
