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

José Guadalupe Posada (1851-1913) standing in front of a workshop of Antonio Vanegas Arroyo.

José Guadalupe Posada (Mexican, 1851–1913). The image to the left is the way Posada's workshop looked about 1899. It is one of two photo images we have of the artist. Posada is on the right and it is generally agreed that the young man is Posada's son Juan Sabino Posada Vela who died in 1900. In our search for Posada we now believe that we know the identity of the third person in the photo. In the image below we see historians Agustín Sánchez González and Helia Emma Bonilla Reyna in front of the workshop as it is today. It is about three blocks from Mexico City's zocolo.
