Established in 1511, Baracoa was Cubas first religious and administrative center. During its long history, a unique artistic tradition developed that is greatly influenced by the clash and eventual melding of the Tai­no, European, and African cultures, along with the constant presence of the exuberant natural beauty of the area.This Spanish/English publication, with beautiful full-color illustrations, details the evolution of Baracoas contemporary art movement, and at the same time vividly displays the unique Baracoan style of painting, inspired by nature, legend and myth.The first section of The Painters Magic briefly traces the evolution of local painting from the pre-Colombian period to the present time.

The second part of the book presents some of Baracoas most prominent contemporary artists. The high quality reproductions of each individuals work are complemented with personal commentaries by the artists about their painting styles and artistic influences.

The carefully woven biographical material helps to illustrate how this school of art is inspired by Hispano-African-Caribbean legends and myths, by the city itself, and also by the many natural wonders that surround Baracoa.This charming coastal town, nestled against a backdrop of magnificent mountains, has given birth to a decisive Baracoan artistic identity and to a profound sense of the Artist being an integral element of this magical world.
