I hadn't heard about artist Miguel Covarrubias (1904-1957) until I read about him at Shane Glines wonderful Cartoon Retro site. He was a Mexican artist and he traveled to Bali and wrote a book about it, which is still available. Not many examples of his work are on the Web, but I really like what I can find. His work reminds me a little of Boris Artzybasheff's.
