Artists, col­lec­tors, en­thu­si­asts, and friends turned up at the León Gallery in cel­e­bra­tion of its found­ing direc­tor’s birth­day. It also marked a mile­stone for the auc­tion house—they achieved top art sales in the coun­try as well as sev­eral world records for hav­ing sold 11 out of 12 of the Philip­pines’ most ex­pen­sive paint­ings. Guests en­joyed an Ital­ian menu pre­pared by Chef Mar­garita Forés, while mu­sic mas­ter­minded by Rob­bie San­tos livened up the crowd. The gallery’s walls dis­played im­por­tant por­traits by no less than Juan Luna y Novi­cio and Fer­nando Amor­solo y Cueto, among oth­ers, adding to the A- list at­ten­dees.
