ART HISTORY MEME → [1/8] ArtistsJosé Guadalupe Posada, 1852-1913 
La Calavera Catrina (c. 1910-1913) | The Birth of Venus (1913) | La Calavera de Don Quijote (1905) | La Calavera de Don Folias y El Negrito (date unknown) | La Calavera Huertista (c. 1910)

Born to working-class parents of indigenous descent, Posada became one of Mexico’s greatest engravers and political satirists, and is considered by many to be the founder of modern Mexican art and aesthetics. He is best known for his calaveras, which he set in scenes of political satire. Posada’s artistic style and and expression for the political concerns of Mexico’s working classes greatly inspired the style of Diego Rivera, who later paid homage to Posada in his mural Dream of a Sunday Afternoon.
