The Agung Rai Museum of Fine Art (ARMA) in cooperation with Red & White Publishing is sponsoring an exhibition of fine sketches by Miguel Covarrubias through August 8, 2012.
The exhibition includes 70 original rare sketches made by the Mexican artist and author Miguel Covarrubias in the early 1930s while he and his wife were resident in Bali, along with original works in the collection of ARMA.
Miguel Covarrubias (1904-1957) was a renowned Mexican painter and caricaturist, ethnologist and art historian. He married his wife, Rosa, in 1930 and embarked on an extended honeymoon to Bali where they studied Balinese culture, language and rituals.
He made a second visit to Bali in 1933 as a Guggenheim Fellow
resulting in the book Island of Bali,
a best selling anthropological study on Bali that remains in print and academically relevant nearly 80 years after its original publication.
The exhibition marks the launch of a new book “Miguel Covarrubias: Sketches, Bali – Shanghai”.
