Since the creation of the Academy of Fine Arts of Havana by the French painter Jean-Baptiste Vermay in the 18th century, fine art has become very important in Cuban culture. There are many Cuban painters, the most famous being Wilfredo Lam, the contemporary painter Raul Mendive and Felix Gonzales Torres.
