Miguel Bose was born in Panama into a very artistic and culturally diverse family. His father was Luis Miguel Dominguin, a famous Spanish bullfighter and his mother was Lucia Bose, an Italian actress. Miguel's godfather was Luchino Visconti the famous Italian director, and Pablo Picasso was the godfather to his sister Paola Dominguin. Not only was Pablo Picasso a close friend of the family, but so was the world famous author Ernest Hemingway. Miguel continued his family's artistic slant by becoming a Latin Grammy-winning Spanish/Italian musician and actor.
In the summer of 1983 Miguel Bose was interviewed and photographed by Andy Warhol for the cover of "Interview Magazine." Bose, during the same year, commissioned Warhol to design the cover of his ninth album "Made In Spain." This work pictured is a unique and original Andy Warhol graphite on paper portrait drawing of Miguel Bose that was created during that commissioned project. The drawing is quite large and encompasses most of the 31 3/4" x 23 3/4" sheet of handmade paper.
