Ed Lantin’s Presidential Portraits

In 1989, to commemorate the visit of then Philippine President Corazon Aquino,the Vancouver, Filipino community gifted the late president with a life-size oil portrait done by Canadian Filipino artist Edgardo S. Lantin.

Lantin, who was then relatively new in portraiture, basked in the limelight when the visiting president graciously accepted the gift. “The portrait was a labour of love, at the same time a big challenge for me,” the artist said of his work now displayed at the Malacanang Museum.
