Sunny beaches and swaying palm trees, nightclubs and casinos wafting with cigar smoke, exotic women in brightly colored costumes dancing the rumba—in the first half of the 20th century, Cuba was a veritable resort colony for those in search of Latino music, gambling, and tropical romance. Advertising illustrators—graphistos—heightened its appeal in a visual style that combined art nouveau, art deco, European modernism, and Vegas-style kitsch with a distinctly Cuban sensibility. Collecting hundreds of vintage graphics from the 1920s to the 1959 revolution, this is a visual history of a golden age in Cuba, documenting both its capitalist extravagance and a lost popular culture.
