Riondo Rum print ad (1945)

Some of the detail in this evocative image by 'Kapra' reminds me quite a bit of Mexican artist
Miguel Covarrubias, who was working during the same period.

Can anyone out there share any information with us about Kapra?

Can't help you with that artist, but here's a small slide show I made about Covarrubias:

I know quite a bit about my father-in-law Bill KAPRA.
The wooden sculpture of the bird in the ad is sitting in a prominent place in my living room. Check the utube video of other KAPRA ad art at ... idstevedvd

Hi...Bill Kapra painted a portrait of my grandmother when she was a young girl in 1934. We may be distant cousins with the Kapra family... - Patty
