POSADA! Calaveras, Chapbooks, and Broadsides – Works from 1880 – 1910
February 26, 2021 - March 21, 2021
Legendary Mexican printmaker José Guadalupe Posada’s works will be on display at Hecho a Mano February 26 – March 21.
Posada is thought to have said, “death is democratic.” Through his years as a printmaker, Posada’s work was distributed widely and seen by all classes of people in late-19th and early-20th century Mexico. Well-known today for his images of calaveras, or skeletons, Posada used these figures sometimes as satire and also timed their publications with Dia de los Muertos.
