George Luks covered the Spanish-American conflict from a bar. Frederic Remington wired his employer from Havana, “There will be no war;” Hearst replied, “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war.” William Glackens depicted invading Americans, Spanish soldiers, and the Cubans caught between them. After the war, Winslow Homer commemorated the critical battle of Santiago in his ominous Searchlight on Harbor Entrance, Santiago de Cuba. Join us to learn how artists’ responses—documentary, political, and aesthetic—to American involvement in Cuba shaped notions of conflict and imperialism.
