    The Wish List brings a curatorial slant to collecting the season’s best. Carefully selected fine Philippine art pieces by National Artists BenCab, Vicente Manansala, Napoleon Abueva, and Arturo Luz banners this sale. Modern masters such as Sanso and Malang, along with sought-after contemporary works by Tapaya and Taniguchi, rare furniture, and tribal and ethnographic art comprise the auction lineup. Each lot has been selected not just for its value, but also for its inherent beauty and the appreciation it deserves—a sentiment all too perfect for this most cherished time of year.

    Under the Tree: The Wish List will be held on Saturday, 23 November, 2 pm at the Salcedo Auctions headquarters in NEX Tower along Ayala Avenue, Makati City.
