Cueto and Celebrating Cuba!


In January 2019, the University of Florida George A. Smathers Libraries collaborated with Mr. Emilio Cueto to display, for the first time publicly, over 300 ceramic pieces from his extraordinary personal collection. The exhibit, Inspired by Cuba! A Survey of Cuba-themed Ceramics, was on view January 7, 2019 – April 5, 2019 in the Smathers Library. It explores the many ways in which Cuba has been immortalized in ceramic pieces. The pieces range from the mid-18th century to recent years. The video is a tour of the exhibition, hosted and narrated by Cueto.

This book explores the many ways in which the island of Cuba has been immortalized in ceramic pieces. While the works of several Cuban ceramists are present in these pages, this is not a book about Cuban ceramics featuring Cuban artists working in that medium. The protagonist of this book is Cuba itself, seen through the eyes of Ceramists — native and foreign.

This text illustrates the plants and animals of Cuba.
