Born in Mexico City in 1904, Miguel Covarrubias
was an exceptional illustrator and painter with keen
interests in archaeology, anthropology and ethnology.
Covarrubias and his wife Rosa traveled twice to Bali in 1930
and in 1933, living there each time for extended periods of
time. In 1937, Covarrubias published his Island of Bali, a
detailed description of Balinese life, art, dance, religion
and history, a book beautifully illustrated by Covarrubias'
drawings and paintings and by wonderful photographs taken by
Rosa Covarrubias. Miguel Covarrubias was not only a brilliant
artist, but also a 20th century pioneer in the fields of anthropology
and archaeology. He died in February, 1957.
