When mentioning fine arts in Cuba, more than its two centuries of existence within the less than six centuries of the discovery of the island by Spain cannot be avoided. A major Spanish colony in the Caribbean, yet with native culture of little importance compared to the rest of the new world, Cuban painting began taking its first steps in XVIII by two black artists, Nicolas de la Escalera and Vicente Escobar. The tobacco and the sugar cane industries rapidly developed by the Spaniards urgently needed slave main power. As Cuban natives were early exterminated, Africans, Chinese, even French escaping from the Haitian revolution as well as other Caribbean islanders were taken to the island for hard labor. Yet, with them also their cultural roots were introduced, results shown today not only in fine arts but in music, dance and decorative arts, not mentioning literature, theater, cinema, etc. Don Fernando Ortiz, a prominent Cuban-Spanish lawyer, writer and researcher also considered the third discoverer of the island for his studies in the ethnic and cultural mixture of the Cuban society, defined Cuba as a melting pot where many cultures melted forming a new, rich and independent one. Neither before nor after such an accurate definition has been made of the Cuban culture. From 1900 to the late 1950's art nouveau and art deco flourished in Havana as an answer to the demand of the wealthy. Colonial architecture, pictorial arts and portraits were developed and Havana became an important cultural center, hosting prominent artists of the era. Cuban paintings and Cuban artists as Juana Borrero, Garcia Menocal in XIX as well as Romanach, Mariano, Ponce, Arche, Portocarrero, Amelia Pelaez, Servando Cabrera, Antonia Eiriz and Wilfredo Lam among others immediately gained international acclaim in the XXth. Century. Cubism, legendary "Guajiros", gloomy old rooms, lush landscapes, roosters and tropical still-lives, creole beautiful young women and monochromatic portraits of maidens and saints representing the entire Cuban cultural entourage were captivated by the Cuban artists in the past two centuries. Still is by the younger generations. Their works can be seen in the most important museums of the world as well as in the two main exhibition halls of Cuban and European art of the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Old Havana. Cuban artists living in the island as well as spread all over the world have continued a rich tradition of fine arts. Tomas Sanchez, Fabelo, Kacho, Eduardo Abela Torras, Ernesto Rancano, Alexander Cedeno, Yosmany Garcia, Sandor Gonzalez, Mijares, Cosme, Elsa Mora, Flora Fong, Humberto Castro, Finale, Mendive, Montoto, Zaida del Rio, Garcia Pena, Jose Bedia, Hilda Vidal, Jose Franco, Santos Serpa, Pedro Pablo Oliva, Sosabravo and many more give credit. Naive Cuban art is beautifully represented by artists as Jay Matamoros, Isabel de las Mercedes, Garcia Triana, Zuniga, Alicia Leal, Moreira and many others. Cubans are very proud of their artistic rich heritage, they wish to believe that the sweetness of sugar and all around the year shining sun combined with the many greens and blues of the island’s landscapes and its white sandy beaches paved the road to Cuban unique art forms.
