Abstract

The San Agustin Convent, located in Intramuros, the historic core of Manila, hosts a rich collection of 19 altarpieces (retablos). These retablos are an important heritage which was recorded in full detail for its better future conservation and knowledge. This article presents the outcome of this process and it is ultimately aimed at promoting and giving greater visibility to this art, which is still alive today in the Philippines and where it has evolved to produce its own local tradition, while remaining linked to its early Spanish precedents.
