About the book:
Tanaw transcends the traditional role of the art publication as a catalogue and single-minded historical narrative. It views the BSP Painting Collection not simply as a cache of precious objects belonging to an institution, but more importantly as an invaluable resource signifying its richness, diversity, and sophistication of culture.
