Miguel Covarrubias captures Leopold Stokowski (1882–1977), conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra, in his trademark conducting pose. Stokowski was born in London and attended the Royal College of Music and Queen’s College, Oxford, emigrating to the United States in 1905. He worked in New York and Cincinnati before settling in Philadelphia. In 1940 Stokowski collaborated with Walt Disney to create—and then appeared in—Fantasia. For the film, he created his own adaptation of this well-known tone-poem “A Night on Bare Mountain.” This version was used for Fantasia and included Stokowski’s revised finale. Warner Brothers based their 1948 Looney Tunes episode “Long-Haired Hare” on him. He continued to conduct until 1972, when he returned to England.
