Item description for Miguel Covarrubias: 4 Visions by Eva Ayala, Juan Rafael Rivera, Selva Hernandez & Miguel Covarrubias...
Mexican artist Miguel Couvarrubias (1904-1957) was a prolific illustrator, caricaturist, muralist, archeologist and anthropologist. Moving to New York in 1924, working for Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, he was famous within months.
A major participant in the Harlem Renaissance, he understood the cultural rediscovery of that time as expressed in the creative arts and folk arts. As a world traveler, his understanding that indigenous peoples were governed by mysticism, not politics and economics, lead to his being a forerunner of the comparative study. This lavishly illustrated monograph contains 140 color images and as many b&w. Includes a chronology and a comprehensive list of his work. Text in Spanish and English. Import.
