Guevara, a Chilean-born painter, poet and playboy, was loosely affiliated with the Bloomsbury set and with Nancy Cunard's Hours Press. Aside from one poem (published by Cunard), this appears to be Guevara's only published literary work. Most of his painted oeuvre (which was exhbited to some acclaim in the Twenties and Thirties) was destroyed in the London blitz during WWII.
