"Miguel Covarrubias (1904–1957) was one of the foremost Mexican artists of the twentieth century. A quintessential humanist, he made important contributions in the fields of anthropology, archaeology, theater, and dance.
The breadth of his intellectual interests inspired him to explore cultures as varied as the brilliant hues of his art. He became an expert in indigenous Mexican art and culture and an important figure in the preservation of ancient sites and artifacts. After capturing the creative energy of the Harlem Renaissance, he documented a vanishing way of life on the Indonesian island of Bali. And in the pages of Vanity Fair and other popular American magazines of the Jazz Age, Covarrubias took the measure of the era's statesmen, celebrities, and rogues."
