Illustrating Mexico one page at a time-Print Art of José Guadalupe Posada

Broadsheet depicting Emiliano Zapata's Skull-La Gran Calavera de Emiliano Zapata. Panel 1.

José Guadalupe Posada (Mexican, 1851–1913). Stanford Curator of Latin Americana, Adan Griego writes, "Posada lived through the almost uninterrupted 30 years of the Porfirio Diaz dictatorship or porfiriato and his calavera images became the venue to satirize the excesses of Mexican bourgeois society. French artist Jean Charlot encountered Posada’s work while visiting Mexican muralist Diego Rivera in the 1920s and is credited with providing a wider audience for the satirical artist."
