Posted November 14, 2007 by publisher in Cuba Culture.


The Havana Auction, to be held for the sixth time in this capital on November 28, will include this year the work of a group of classic and novel Cuban painters.

The projects Havana Gallery and Havana Auction were created in 2002 to protect the island’s cultural heritage and to promote the work of the new Cuban artists in the world.

The auction, which draws the attention of a large number of collectors from the United States and Europe, takes in the work of renowned Cuban painters such as Leopoldo RomaƱach, Juan Gil Garcia, Rafael Soriano, Victor Manuel, Servando Cabrera Moreno and Mariano.

According to the vice president of the event, Luis Miret, the 58 paintings, sketches, sculptures and photos will be auctioned at Cuba’s emblematic National Hotel in Havana.

There will also be a virtual gallery, which will be on-line throughout the year. Miret said that several telephones will be set up during the auction day to receive any outside bids.

From November 19 onwards, the Havana Gallery will exhibit the works that will be auctioned on November 28 at 6.00 pm, which constitutes an excellent opportunity for the people who appreciate fine art.
