Historically, Cuba has one of the most exciting art scenes in Latin America. Often overlooked for the Cuban sparkling beaches and exciting night life, the island is now thought of as having a thriving emerging art scene. As a result, Cuban culture has become one of the island’s central attractions and focal points.
Cubaism, having recently extended its interest into the art world, is offering a series of stimulating, informative and specially organized art tours, grounded in a political, social and historical context, allowing participants to gain the best understanding possible of Cuban art.
This tour led by one of Cubaism’s art specialists, will begin with a two hour guided visit of the country’s most affluent collection, the National Museum of Fine Arts. The collection starts with the establishment of the fine arts under Spanish colonial rule exploring the ostentation styles, coupled with delicate romanticism and the striking Baroque. The collection moves from colonial art to that of the vanguard and finishes with post- Revolutionary Cuban art, the latest works being from the 1990s.
Following an introduction to the foundations of the Cuban art scene, Cubaism’s Old Masters Art Tour will take participants to the studios and houses of famous living Old Master artists. By giving you the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the island’s most historical figures from the art world, Cuba Art Tours will facilitate and ensure that your exploration of Cuban art is accessible and enjoyable.
