Covarrubias in Bali

In the early 1930’s, celebrated Mexican artist, Miguel Covarrubias (1904-1957) and his wife, Rose made two trips to Bali that would not only profoundly affect his work, but also the world’s understanding of the island. This stunning collection of Covarrubias’ Balinese inspired works is split into four sections – the first deals with the couple’s experiences and how the beauty and intensity of the civilization affected them. The second is a stylistic analysis of Miguel’s Bali period, and the third a virtual exhibition of what are considered his most important Balinese works. These are followed by a chronology of his life, a selection of Rose’s photographs from the two visits, and various examples of Miguel’s field notes and drawings.
