Painting Story Cuban tobacco culture from the early 1900s is the theme for this oil painting by artist Maria Cabrera-Macias.

Tobacco was first used by the peoples of the pre-Columbian Americas. Native Americans apparently cultivated the plant and smoked it in pipes for medicinal and ceremonial purposes.

Christopher Columbus brought a few tobacco leaves and seeds with him back to Europe, but most Europeans didn't get their first taste of tobacco until the mid-16th century, when France's diplomat Jean Nicot -- for whom nicotine is named -- began to popularize its use. Tobacco was introduced to France in 1556, Portugal in 1558, Spain in 1559, and England in 1565.

In Cuba, the province of Pinar del Rio is famous for its tobacco plantations at the "Vuelta Abajo" zone since the late 1500s. Cuban cigars have been worldwide recognized for their quality for almost 4 centuries.

 

 

Most of Maria's Original Oil Paintings belong to Private Collections in U.S., Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland and Venezuela.
