          Paris, 2 Windows Across the Street signed and dated 1981 (upper left) acrylic on canvas 32” x 32” (81 cm x 81 cm) PROVENANCE Private collection, Singapore LITERATURE Reyes, Cid. J. Elizalde Navarro. Manila: National Museum of the Philippines, 2008. Full-color photograph and painting description on page xix. WRITE UPJ Elizalde Navarro’s artistic career can be categorized into three particular periods: the “Japanese period,” the “Australian interlude,” and the “Bali Renaissance.” Navarro does not confine himself in one artistic movement – constantly seeking out new inspirations, his repertoire offers a variety of styles and one could easily find a work that resonates with them. Amidst these changing art styles, one thing Navarro utilizes in his myriad of works is color. Art is a language meant to communicate, he says, and he associates colors with specific emotional charges. “I have experienced colors as some sort of phenomenon that stays in our psyche for a long time is not for always,” he said. In this lot in hand, a 1981 painting entitled Paris, 2 Windows Across the Street, Navarro’s penchant for abstract expressionism and his unique relationship with colors are shown. He used shades of bright yellow with specks of blue, green, and red in an abstraction of the Parisian streets. Navarro came into his artistic maturity in the same modernist circle of H.R. Ocampo and Vicente Manansala and took inspiration from his mentor Carlos “Botong” Francisco’s romance of form and colors. However, while he came in contact with these modernist artists, he paved his own path out of the academe and into abstraction and figuration. (Hannah Valiente)

          Jerry Elizalde Navarro (1924 - 1999)

          Est: ₱800,000 - ₱1,040,000

          Jerry Elizalde Navarro (1924 - 1999) Totems of My Forefathers signed and dated 5/22/93 (upper right) oil on canvas 47 1/2" x 33" (121 cm x 84 cm) Accompanied by a certificate issued by Mrs. Emma Navarro confirming the authenticity of this lot PROVENANCE: Private Collection, Manila The profusion and explosion of colors in Jerry Elizalde Navarro's oeuvre can be partly traced to his Bali paintings. Navarro commenced the Bali paintings beginning in 1989 during his first visit to the island, to which he would return occasionally. "Colors—the way colors are used is eye-boggling. I am used to seeing colors in a well-ordered way. In Bali, color attains order in a disordered way; as if thrown haphazardly but with order when seen from a distance," Navarro delightfully expressed in his conversations with Rod. Paras-Perez. Bali offered Navarro a sense of artistic reincarnation. Paras-Perez wrote: "After his encounter with Bali, the broad dashing calligraphic signature of his oeuvres attained a more vibrant, throbbing color pulse. Moreover, enough works remained within the traditional mode of structuring: a relational approach (to colors and brushwork) swirling around a central core or axis." During the latter part of his life, spanning the years 1993 to 1999, the spirit of abstraction found its way back to Navarro's canvas. From his Bali paintings, Navarro's style returned to abstract expressionism, which he previously explored starting in the 1950s. His art had finally come full circle. Perhaps the primary catalyst for this return was I Madé Sumadiyasa, a Balinese abstract expressionist artist born in 1971. Madé's works show the universal aspects of Balinese culture and philosophy. Cornelius Choy, the man who introduced the magnificence of Balinese arts and handicrafts to Navarro, recounted how the latter became convinced to return to abstraction. Choy shared: "Mr. Navarro always believed in that 'neatness.' But when he saw Madé's abstraction, something snapped. It was the bridge, perhaps, that he had been wanting to cross over for a long time. And when he had actually seen Madé's painting—that was the bridge. And he stepped over… and that's when these exuberant strokes started. Of course, he always had these strokes in his dancers. But he can paint dancers in one fashion, abstraction in another, and watercolor in another fashion. He was able to control that talent. But his abstractions—the last five years of his life—went into a different direction." Through a harmonious interplay of movement and colors, Navarro engendered an approach to abstract expressionism devoid of Western predominance, thus manifesting his Asian sensibility. With the dynamism of brushstrokes displayed by the slathering of paint, Navarro made evident the primary source of his abstraction: a fusion of underlying dynamic forces. Towards the end of his career, abstraction had become Navarro's "motif and content-bearer." (A.M.)

          Jerry Elizalde Navarro (1924 - 1999) - Balinese Fantasy

          Est: ₱240,000 - ₱312,000

          Jerry Elizalde Navarro (1924 - 1999) Balinese Fantasy signed and dated 1995 (middle left) acrylic on canvas 16 1/2" x 26" (42 cm x 66 cm) Jerry Elizalde Navarro's conversations with Botong Francisco sparked his interest in the island of Bali. Botong wanted to see "The Last Paradise on Earth" but never made it. In an Inquirer article dated October 15, 1989, Navarro mentioned: "In Bali, I thought of my friend, the late Carlos V. Francisco, who might have given his right arm just to see Bali close, like from ringside." Sensational tourism reports about Bali only intensified Navarro's desire to encounter the island's sheer beauty. Hence, Navarro always thought of Bali as a worthwhile experience for every artist who seeks to broaden their visual vocabulary and acquire new creative depths. Navarro commenced the Bali paintings beginning in 1989 during his first visit to the island, to which he would return occasionally. In the same Inquirer article, he wrote: "Bali stuns you with colors. A very vigorous and free profusion of colors in the Bali palette plays a major role in the unfolding of life there." Bali offered Navarro a unique tropical palette inspired by its landscapes, biodiversity, and culture. Navarro proved his capacity in innovating his art to meet the coloristic demands of the Balinese by operating within the realms of his Asian sensibility. The use of naturally occurring colors is essential in Balinese culture. Navarro stressed this importance in his Bali paintings as an homage to the culture he had grown to love. This acknowledgment made Navarro witness Bali as a fusion of underlying dynamic forces resulting in an explosion of colors rather than a purely visual extravaganza. (A.M.)

          Jeremias "Jerry" Elizalde Navarro (1924 - 1999) Of Griffins and Gargoyles signed and dated 5-20-93 (lower right) oil on canvas 57" x 45" (145 cm x 114 cm) PROPERTY FROM THE DON EUGENIO LOPEZ JR. COLLECTION The exuberant interplay of colors gave characterization to the abstract paintings of J. Elizalde Navarro. A feat keenly explored in the later years of his career, this can perhaps be traced to the artist's residency in Bali. In his first encounter with the tropical paradise, his color premises were among the first to be affected. According on Cid Reyes book titled J. Elizalde Navarro, the fine artist said: “Colors - the way colors are used, is eye-boggling. I am used to seeing colors in a well-ordered way. In Bali, color attains order in a disordered way, as if thrown haphazardly but with an order when seen from a distance - mysterious - a predominance of primary colors, no mixtures. This throws out all the color laws from art schools.” An artist prominently known for his ever-evolving art styles and forms, his oeuvres attained a more vibrant hue in the early 90s. Furthermore, many of his works had "a relational approach to colors and brushwork swirling around a central core or axis." His canvases became a whirlpool of color, mixing colors on the spur of his emotions and creating unique and exquisite combinations. Such descriptions can also be observed in this J. Elizalde Navarro oil on canvas piece titled Of Griffins and Gargoyles. In 1993, Navarro staged three exhibitions in three consecutive days at three different galleries: The Ayala Museum, The Luz Gallery, and Duemila Gallery. Having a plethora of Baliinspired pieces, the exhibits were titled "Return to Abstraction." Navarro claimed that no single gallery could ever hold his works. The abundance and intensity of the Bali scenery had put Navarro in peril, who said he had not exhausted his options. Nevertheless, the abstract approach of Navarro was brilliantly demonstrated in his triumphant exhibits. Not so long after this fantastic turn of events, the National Artist would once again head a one-man show dedicated to him by the Metropolitan Museum of Manila in 1995, the “J. Elizalde Navarro: 45 Years of the Artist’s Works.” In the show, notable pieces belonging to his “Return to Abstraction” exhibit were displayed. (P.I.R.)

          A Cremation in Ubud, Bali signed and dated 1988 (left) oil on canvas 35" x 35" (89 cm x 89 cm) National Artist Jerry Elizalde Navarro has come to be known for his powerful use of color and intelligible figurative approach. The renowned modernist puts on display his technical proficiency, elegantly rendering his subjects with a graceful and potent vigor—be they figurative or abstract. This very work by Navarro is a bit of an oddity. Very rarely does one come across works by the iconic modernist, more so one of such distinct subject matter. In the piece, Navarro makes use of strong, definitive, impasto strokes, adding to the grit of the composition. The stylized oeuvre features Navarro’s palette, but in a very different light. With brilliant color and refined restraint, Navarro captures the abstracted scenery in a very masterful fashion—his keen eye for detail and penchant for color put forth. In appreciating Jerry Elizalde Navarro’s interpretation of our southern indigenous cultures, the viewer should recall the artist’s exposure to the art of a place farther south: Bali, in neighboring Indonesia. Jerry Elizalde Navarro became the first Filipino artist at the Yayasan Dharma Seni Museum Neka in Bali, Indonesia. Eventually, Navarro was touched by the island’s visual traditions and in that distinctly Balinese sensitivity to movement and form.

          The Mountain Stream, Bali signed and dated 5.20.91 (lower right and verso); dedicated 14 Dec '96 To Drs Benny & Mona, May this will remind you of us and we hope that the coming year will be fruitful for you two and the children.Jerry & Emma (verso) acrylic on paper 13 3/4" x 13 1/4" (35 cm x 34 cm) National Artist Jerry Elizalde Navarro’s 40-year long career reflects in his signature and vibrant art style. His unique take when it came to painting was a wide and free range that extended from abstract expressionism, cubism, pointillism, assemblage, and more that were presented in a variety of mixes in watercolors, acrylics, and oils. In many ways, Navarro’s unique free mindset is reflected through his vivid take on different art styles, and in this particular artwork, he portrays a mountain stream in Bali. The piece itself is somewhat unclear, as it is a blend of vivid colors spread across the canvas. The stream itself in the center is clearer and is surrounded by all of these colors, the nature of what could be trees and other fauna are depicted in vivid colors that range from bright to small hints of deeper colors. Above the stream are brighter shades of yellow and orange depicting light that reveals the rest of the surrounding nature and almost reflect on the waters. The stream and nature almost blend together as they get lost further down the waters and into the light. Being surrounded and lost within these bright colors that evokes this liveliness and emotion of joy and happiness, as if it is inviting the viewer to follow the stream itself and explore and think more on what else is there in this painting. Navarro reflects not only the liveliness of the art and culture and the beauty of the nature of Bali, but the artistic freedom that leaves the viewers to lose themselves in thought.

J. Elizalde Navarro. National Museum of the Philippines. Manila. 2008. p. 124   Due to his engagement in advertising arts that exposed him to the popular culture of his time, Navarro developed a fondness for Pop Art. This style was championed in the Philippines by none other than Navarro, although it is important to note that his “Pop Art period” was purely an experimental stage. Nevertheless, it is important to note that his “Pop Art period” was purely an experimental stage  Nevertheless, Navarro integrated Pop Art with Abstract Expressionism, resulting in works that appear as mockeries of contemporary affairs. The Filipino Politician’s Family is Navarro’s take on the morally decrepit situation of Philippine politics, created at a time when the socio-political climate of the Philippines was in its tumultuous stage. Rendered in a satirical approach, Navarro portrays the politician’s family as comical figures who take advantage of their privilege and power to make a fool of the people – one that is symbolized by their ridiculous features. In the September 22, 1973 issue of The Asia Magazine, Navarro was featured in the “Artists of Asia” series. In the article “Practitioners of Pop Art,” Peggy Printz wrote: “Jerry E. Navarro has turned the slick poster style of commercial advertising into satiric Pop Art painting and sculptures with the vibrant colors and folk-art directness of his native Philippines. Using acrylic paints, often combined with tinted plexiglass or assorted found objects, he juxtaposes jarring colors, producing discordant, reverberating rainbows.” Printz added that “Navarro’s aims are typical of a large number of Asian artists who hope to reflect their environment through an art that is relevant to the time and place in which they live, and that also retains the flavor of their own cultural past.

          Jerry Elizalde Navarro 1924 - 1999) a) Made Dancing the Legong signed and dated 1959 (lower left) watercolor on paper 16” x 12” (41 cm x 31 cm) b) Untitled (Bali Series) signed and dated 1989 (lower right) charcoal on paper 16” x 12” (41 cm x 31 cm) Jerry Elizalde Navarro’s penchant for Bali had its roots with his conversations with the Angono master, Carlos “Botong” Francisco, who wanted to see “The Last Paradise on Earth” but never made it. In an Inquirer article dated October 15, 1989, the artist mentioned: “In Bali, I thought of my friend, the late Carlos V. Francisco, who might have given his right arm just to see Bali close, like from ringside.” Moreover, his desire to visit the famed city was invigorated by sensational tourism reports that the artist read from overseas. Navarro had always thought of Bali as a worthwhile experience for every artist. The Bali paintings were created beginning in 1989 during Navarro’s first visit to the island, to which he would return occasionally. Navarro was greatly stunned by the harmonious and complementary colors of the island. During his visits, he wrote: “The Balinese colors, which seem to have no rhyme nor reason, but are happily correct in Bali, influenced my palette.” Be that as it may, it is important to note that more than the glaring colors of Balinese culture, it was the island’s pristine, native soul that deeply inspired Navarro’s impressions of the region, leaving a mark of intense finesse and expressiveness in his artistry.

          Jerry Elizalde Navarro (1924 - 1999) Keeping Abreast with the Joneses signed and dated 1970 (lower left) collage on canvas, mixed media 21” x 30” (53 cm x 76 cm) This piece is accompanied by a certificate issued by the artist’s estate confirming the authenticity of this lot Provenance: Private collection, Manila Literature: Reyes, Cid. J. Elizalde Navarro . National Museum of the Philippines. Manila. 2008. p. 192. Throughout the history of art, artists have embodied their lovers as the quintessential template for their pieces, and nude painting is no exception to this. The physical and emotional connection shared by the artist and their lover has catalyzed the former’s virtuosic ingenuity. Being a painter herself, Emma Navarro understood the indispensable artistry and aesthetics of nude painting. Because she modeled exclusively for his husband, Jerry Elizalde Navarro, in the private realms of their studio, she had no reservations and did not become hesitant with regards to flaunting her body in a state of nature. Navarro’s collage-work Keeping Abreast with the Joneses exhibits the female breast as a series of developing and intensifying shapes, with the nipples used as directional signs, pointing towards a full figure of a female silhouette. This silhouette would eventually become an archetype in his nude themes, juxtaposed against interlacing geometric shapes. As explained by Cid Reyes, “the impulse to relate a curvilinear shape against a straight linear approach will be crucial to Navarro’s evolving pictorial language.”

          Est: ₱1,000,000 - ₱1,300,000

          Jerry Elizalde Navarro (1924 - 1999) The Kimono From Ubud Bali signed and dated 1995 (upper left) oil on canvas 32” x 48” (121 cm x 80 cm) Provenance: Private collection, Manila This piece is accompanied by a certificate issued by the artist’s estate confirming the authenticity of this lot Literature: Reyes, Cid. J. Elizalde Navarro. National Museum of the Philippines. Manila. 2008. p. 197. Jerry Elizalde Navarro emancipated the nude from the limitations set by sobriety and diffidence. He enhanced and refined it, turned a blind eye to the conservative gauges of Philippine art, and intensified it with sensuality and hedonism. He may have been equaled in terms of draftsmanship by his contemporaries such as Manansala and Legaspi, but his fresh and unrestricted sultriness that is nonexistent in the works of others earned him a paramount distinction. Navarro had a superior understanding of anatomy, immersing himself in the indispensable dynamism of the human body and its sophistication. The Kimono from Ubud, Bali was a mural design in the private quarters of Navarro and his wife’s Parañaque residence. It presents two viewpoints: a silhouette of Navarro’s then-pregnant wife, Emma, with him facing her in full profile. He is portrayed standing like a kouros — the Greek nude male figure, which Cid Reyes likened to “an Apollo to Emma’s pregnant Venus.” This piece displays Navarro’s penchant for associating his life with his art. His nude pieces are exceptional due to their well-defined features, characterized by the proper application of light and shade which, according to the artist, “is very important in a nude painting.”

          Jerry Elizalde Navarro (1924 - 1999) My Mother’s Mirror signed and dated 1993 (lower right) oil on canvas 18” x 16” (46 cm x 41 cm) When working on his abstract works, Jerry Elizalde Navarro always employs dynamism and exuberance through his sound draftsmanship and sharp predisposition. Navarro’s flamboyant pieces encapsulate the allure of abstract illusionism. In this particular piece, color and form simultaneously occur and amalgamate into each other mellifluously. Navarro’s natural and uninhibited application of colored pigments concurrently directs his preferred shape or figure. The artist utilizes a vivid amalgamation of hues and gestural strokes, with elements of Oriental and Occidental elements coalescing together to form a harmonious and noteworthy work. Gesture is a significant component of this painting wherein striking brushstrokes are applied impetuously. The artist’s application of paint is characterized as salient, intersecting, and forming a synthesis of complementing hues. In essence, Navarro’s fresh take on Modernism is a reflection of his artistic freedom and accomplishment.

          J. Elizalde Navarro (1924 - 1999) The Inscrutable East signed and dated 1991 (left) oil on canvas Navarro was a certified globetrotter and cultural savant. During his lifetime, he not only explored various cultural and artistic centers and hotspots, but also took the time to study their local and traditional techniques, styles, and philosophies. Hence, one can find elements of Japanese, Balinese, and Western painting traditions in Navarro’s style that merge to make singularly intimate works. His gestural painting draws its sources not only from surrealism but from Asian aesthetics as well, which places a premium on spontaneity and quick insight. In this particular piece entitled The Inscrutable East, Navarro pays homage to his eastern and oriental influences. Clearly inspired by traditional calligraphy scroll paintings, Navarro expresses the enigmatic beauty of the quick yet succinct methodology of the medium. One can clearly see remnants of what appears to be logographic, or word-based characters positioned around the canvas, yet their intentions are to be felt rather than read. What Navarro expresses in this piece is the value of spontaneity as a form of artistic expression. Though careful and meticulous restraint when it comes to creation is still a worthy endeavor, Navarro understands that sometimes spontaneous practice unearths previously unknown boundaries. Estimate in USD $14000-$18200

          Jerry Elizalde Navarro 1924-1999 Untitled signed and dated 1960 wood National Artist for painting Jerry Elizalde Navarro may not have the same recall now as many of his peers, like Bencab, Ang Kiukok, Jose Joya, Fernando Amorsolo, or Vicente Manansala, who, by their ubiquitous presence and prominence in the auction scene over the past decade, remain in the public consciousness. Instead, he occupies a more quiet place; mythic still, because of his prodigious output which are well-placed in private collections and museums, but rather impalpable to the general public, particularly the younger set of art collectors and connoisseurs. Yet this was not always the case. Navarro, in his lifetime, explored and excelled in various art fields. An elegant writer and poet, sculptor, graphic designer, and advertising maverick, he represented the Philippines in many international biennales for sculpture (Sao Paulo 1967, 1970,1972), and graphic design (Brno 1974, 1978) and participated in designing the Philippine pavilions in various world fairs and expos (1964 New York World Fair, 1975 Ocean Expo Japan, 1977 International Tokyo Trade Fair, 1979 Hamburg Trade Fair). His interdisciplinary practice; together with his wanderlust which landed him various grants, teaching positions, and exhibitions in Australia, the USA, Japan, and Indonesia; have made his works among the most elegant, cosmopolitan, and sophisticated among the Philippine artists of his time, vaulting his reputation as an artist, and garnering him the National Artist Award in 1999.
