BEVAN, Paul. The Impact of the Work of Miguel Covarrubias on the Artists of Shanghai. An. Inst. Investig. Estét [online]. 2020, vol.42, n.116, suppl.1, pp.17-49.  Epub 18-Jun-2021. ISSN 0185-1276.

Miguel Covarrubias was perhaps the single most important foreign artist to have inspired a group of artists in Shanghai, China during the 1930s. Evidence of Covarrubias's artistic styles-first seen by these artists in magazines such as Vanity Fair-can be found in an array of Chinese magazines, having been adapted by them for their own purposes. Such magazines were published by their colleague, the poet Shao Xunmei, who befriended Covarrubias while he was in China and wrote two important articles about him for his own magazines. Not only was Covarrubias's work influential for these artists, but he would become increasingly interested in aspects of Chinese culture himself; thereby demonstrating an intercultural exchange between three distinct cultures-the USA of Vanity Fair, Covarrubias's Mexico, and the thriving metropolis of Shanghai-locus of Chinese modernity in the 1930s.
