Removal. A student of Carl Frommel and later a professor at the Frankfurt School of Fine Arts, Edouard Willman produced numerous panoramas, including those of the city of Paris and Havana, shown here from the municipality of La Regla. A flourishing city in the 19th century, Havana was then a modern metropolis whose prosperous economy was based primarily on a slave model. An earlier print of this engraving, dated 1854, indicates that the engraver worked from a daguerreotype view. This composition was presented at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1855 in the "Baden and Nassau" section, under the number 176.
