Description: Like the Algonquin Hotel in New York, Virginia Woolf's home in London, and Gertrude Stein's salon in Paris, the home of Rosa and Miguel Covarrubias in Mexico City drew dozens of the world's intellectuals, artists, and celebrities during Mexico's artistic golden age of the 1930s and 1940s. As fascinating themselves as any of their renowned guests, the Covarrubiases together fostered a renaissance of interest in the history and traditional arts of Mexico's indigenous peoples, while amassing an extraordinary collection of art that ranged from pre-Hispanic Olmec and Aztec sculptures to the work of Diego Rivera. Written by a long-time friend of Rosa, this book presents a sparkling, anecdote-rich account of the life and times of Rosa and Miguel. Adriana Williams begins with Miguel's birth in 1904 and follows the brilliant early flowering of his artistic career as a renowned caricaturist for Vanity Fair and the New Yorker magazines, his meeting and marriage with Rosa at the height of her New York dancing career, and their many years of professional collaboration on projects ranging from dance to anthropology to painting and art collecting to the development of museums to preserve Mexico's pre-Columbian heritage.
