A director at San Alejandro Academy, Enrique Caravia would become the father of poster art in Cuba.
Born in Havana, Caravia studied drawing and painting at both the School of Villate and San Alejandro Academy. In 1924, he was able to move to the United States to study commercial art. By 1929, he had gained a scholarship to continue his studies in Europe, where he mainly took instruction in Madrid and Rome. After he completed his studies in Europe, Caravia traveled to Mexico to study engraving and print making at the School of Free Arts. Along the way, Caravia also worked in watercolors and became a truly multifaceted and talented artist.
