Description

Caption, El Quitrin. See image LCP-15 for a detailed description of the Quitrin. A slightly altered version in b/w is also published in Maturin Ballou, History of Cuba (Boston, 1854), facing p. 131. See also, Emilio Cueto, Mialhe's Colonial Cuba [Miami, The Historical Association of Southern Florida, 1994], p. 95 for the same image. This painting is based on a drawing originally done by the French artist Frederic/Federico Mialhe, who lived in Cuba from 1838 to 1854 (see LCP-15), but the painting, according to Cueto, was done by another artist).
