Adapted from the musical play of the same title, Ang Larawan (The Portrait) is based on National Artist Nick Joaquin’s three-act play, “A Portrait of a Filipino as an Artist.” Set in pre-World War II Intramuros (Old Manila), it tells the story of sisters Candida and Paula Marasigan, daughters of high profile painter, Don Marasigan. The sisters undergo financial hardship and are torn whether they should sell their father’s last great painting, ‘The Artist and His Muse’.
