Nationality: american

Ian Hugo pseudonym for Hugh Parker Guiler (15 Feb 1898 – 7 Jan 1985)
“Banker and artist Ian Hugo was born Hugh Parker Guiler in Boston, and his childhood was spent in Puerto Rico, a "tropical paradise" the memory of which stayed with him and surfaces in both his engravings and films. In 1923 he met and married author Anaïs Nin. He assumed the nom de plume Ian Hugo to protect his artistic identity from the banking world. His filmmaking began in response to his interests in motion. A fictionalized portrait of Hugo appears in Philip Kaufman's 1990 film, Henry & June. ” —Bruce Posner
