‘Imeldific’ collection of artworks (partial list)

Imelda marcos paintings

This is a list of art pieces believed to have been purchased by former first lady Imelda Marcos during the martial law years. The list of paintings, many of them by European masters and worth millions of dollars each, was attached to a petition for writ of execution and turnover filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York by the lawyers of the victims of human rights violations during the Marcos dictatorship. The victims are claimants in a case versus the Marcos estate, and who have won a judgment in 1995 and been awarded $2 billion in damages.
