Description:

Carter first travelled to Venezuela in 1944 to gather material for an advertising design project. Along the way he met and came to admire the Venezuelan painter and sculptor Armando Reverón (1889-1954), today considered one of the most important Latin American artists of the 20th century. As Carter reveals in these watercolors, Reverón, who suffered from mental illness throughout his life, was known for surrounding himself with muñecas ​or dolls that he created, named, and used as models.
