Offerings of Fruit for the Temple

This painting, by Mexican Miguel Covarrubias, fetched $1.02 million at Christie's in New York this year more than three times the auction house's pre-sale estimate. Covarrubias was famous in the U.S. for his caricatures in the New Yorker and Vanity Fair. The book he subsequently wrote, Island of Bali, is one of the best about the Island of the Gods.
