Imelda marcos paintings

This file photo taken on June 7, 2007 shows former first lady Imelda Marcos is seen in her apartment in Manila with a gallery of paintings including a Picasso, seen at upper right. Philippine authorities moved on September 30, 2014 to seize paintings by Picasso, Gauguin, Miro, Michelangelo and other masters held by Imelda Marcos after getting a court order against the former first lady. AFP/ROMEO GACAD

MANILA, Philippines—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.

French impressionist Claude Monet’s painting “Water Lilies” ** had been illegally sold to a collector by Mrs. Marcos’ aid, Vilma Bautista, her coaccused for $32 million, but the buyer avoided litigation by paying $10 million which the claimants received in March. Two more—another painting by Monet (48) * and one by Alfred Sisley (7) *—could soon be recovered.


The list is the result of research and investigative work done by the claimants’ lawyers led by Robert Swift. The list has the artists’ names, titles of the paintings, medium used and size. The list may not be complete. Images of most of the masterpieces can be viewed on the Internet. Ma. Ceres P. Doyo
