Miguel Covarrubias


Miguel Covarrubias
This week i came across a book featuring paintings of Bali and it's people by the Mexican artist Miguel Covarrubias (22 November 1904 — 4 February 1957).
I have not heard of this artist before. He was a prolific painter, illustrator and writer.

Love those "Carmen Jones" illustrations! I was only familiar with Covarrubias' Bali paintings. Nice to see some of his other work.
