Gloucestershire, UK: Leslie Gerry Editions, 2016. Limited Edition. Hardcover. "A voyage to Cuba in December 2015 for an intense two week visit of observation; sketching and gathering reference material. Since his return Leslie has created 22 paintings which illustrate a very personal view of Havana.
Havana is one of the oldest and finest cities in the Americas; fascinating, colourful and vivacious, with crumbling tenements, colonial edifices and faded grandeur - a city with an earthy authenticity, full of contradictions.
Here, visitors must expect the unexpected. Graham Greene concluded that Havana was a city where ‘anything was possible’.
The text comprises of extracts from Cuba, a short book by Irene A Wright, an American journalist/editor. Published in 1910, her text provides interesting first-hand insights as to the ongoing rich tapestry of daily life; full of curious flavour, detail and manners of the period." [from the printer].
