The ultimate art book for the cigar lover, The Cigar in Art is a celebration of cigars and the good things in life. The allure of a tropical night featuring a forbidden Cuban Cohiba; the undeniable stylishness of a tuxedoed man lingering over a cigar; the sumptuous dinner punctuated by a Montecristo; the surprising juxtaposition of a beautiful woman smoking a cigar: these are some of the iconic images inspired by the cigar.
The artists who have used cigars in their art are as varied as the images - Pablo Picasso, John Singer Sargent, Edward Sorel, LeRoy Neiman, Milton Glaser, David Hockney, Larry Rivers, Weegee, Edouard Manet, Thomas Hart Benton, Diego Rivera, Max Beerbohm, and Paul Cadmus are just some of the artists represented here, all paying homage to the cigar.

The quintessential art book for the cigar lover, this memorable book should be relished in the same spirit as the artwork--and the subject matter--that it celebrates.Review:
