Vista de una vega de tabaco

Description

"View of a Tobacco Meadow" (caption translation). This lithograph shows a tobacco plantation with enslaved people working in the field, a horse-mounted overseer and a thatched roof on a rectangular house in the background. 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. For a discussion on the image see Emilio Cueto, Mialhe's Colonial Cuba (Miami: The Historical Association of Southern Florida, 1994).
