Description

"View of a Sugar Boiling House" (caption translation). This lithograph shows enslaved people boiling sugar in large cauldron with white people being served drinks by an enslaved person. Sugar pots are on table, which were used for draining the molasses. Frédéric Mialhe (1810-c. 1861), also Federico Mialhe, was a French landscape painter and draughtsman. He went to Cuba on by invitation of the Real Sociedad Patriótica. He designed three sets of lithographs from 1838 to 1854. The publisher, Bernardo May, claimed ownership of this image and sold them under his own name.
