Summary This catalog, which accompanied an exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, gathers paintings, drawings and photography from Cuba done over the past century and a half. In addition to hundreds of works on paper, it features revealing photographs - some never before published - that record the country's wars of independence and revolution, its utopian endeavors and social realities. Numerous essays explore aspects of the Cuban visual arts such as nineteenth-century landscapes and photojournalism, the burgeoning of the arte nuevo period, Wifredo Lam's seminal African-inspired images, the creation of the famed collective mural, Castro-era poster art and the emergence of a new generation of artists.
