(Bilbao, 1825-Guanabacoa, 1889)
Víctor Patricio de Landaluze was a Spanish-born painter active for much of his career in Cuba. He is the best-known Cuban practitioner of costumbrismo. He opposed Cuban independence, an attitude reflected in his work; nevertheless his paintings provide a valuable view of nineteenth-century Cuban society. His works also depict a somewhat idealized view of plantation life.
