IPTC INFO
CaptionWho could imagine that Mexico's turn of the century hardworking printmaker Jose Guadalupe Posada would someday be celebrated as the first humorist in modern art? Today his political and satirical skeletons these ubiquitous images of death come alive symbolize Mexico's intimate and comfortable relationship with death best expressed in the annual Dia de los Muertos Day of the Dead holiday. ______________ In 1887 a flood in Leon destroyed Posada’s workshop and possibly caused the death of several members of his family. Prior to the flood Posada had developed relationships with several publishers in Mexico City. Together with these contacts and possibly with the desire to seek improved opportunity in a larger market Posada moved his business to Mexico City and opened his first workshop at Calle Cerrada de Santa Teresa.
