Note:
This is a later hand drawn and painted version of Covarrubias' well known Tree of Modern Art that appeared in Vanity Fair Magazine in May of 1933. This tree is much the same, but the name of Dali has been added to the Surrealists branch, reflecting Dali's rise to prominence in the ensuring seven years. The Greek bust and the reclining man with frame are no present. The picture is signed by Covarrubias in the lower right. The date is estimated based on the verso of the paper being a blue lined base map of the National Park Service dated 12/28/39. This drawing was found in the papers of B. Ashburton Tripp (see our maps and drawing by him) and we assume that Covarrubias and Tripp were friends (verified by Tripp's descendants) and that the blue line base map was something Tripp was working on in his landscape architecture business. Possibley Covarrubias drew this for Tripp during a visit.
