Catalogue Note

"Covarrubias' stay in Bali profoundly transformed his creative aspirations. A lover of beauty 'at first sight,' Miguel fell deeply in love with the lush exuberance of the island, with its women, its dances, its music, and its theater; and with the beauty of its inhabitants...In his studies, drawings, notes, and research, he attempted to capture the essence of the beauty of Balinese culture...Miguel made Bali his own as no one else had ever done, the Bali of an aesthete obsessed with taking possession of beauty itself." 

-Selva Hernández, "A Marco Polo in New York," Miguel Covarrubias: 4 Miradas / 4 Visions, Mexico City, 2005, p. 75
