Posada

February 02, 1951. José Guadalupe Posada (February 2, 1852 - January 20, 1913) was a Mexican cartoonist illustrator and artist whose work has influenced many Latin American artists and cartoonists because of its satirical acuteness and political engagement. In this undated photo released by the Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes de Mexico (CONACULTA), is seen an engraving by Mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada. In 2013, Mexico marks the 100 year anniversary of the death of Posada with exhibitions, publications and concerts. Posada is the creator of "La Catrina", a popular engraving of a skull wearing an elegant hat.
