Finding aid for the José Guadalupe Posada prints, 1880-1943

Title: José Guadalupe Posada prints
Dates: 1880-1943
Number: 960060
Creator/Collector: Posada, José Guadalupe, 1852-1913
Extent: 6.0 linear feet (375 prints)
Abstract: A largely self-taught artist who produced more than 20,000 prints, his most well-known pieces for the publisher Antonio Vanegas Arroyo in Mexico City. Most were illustrated broadsides on brightly colored paper and sold by strolling vendors throughout Mexico. Posada influenced the 20th-century Mexican muralists, for whom he was the quintessentially Mexican populist artist. Collection includes newspapers, chapbooks, half-sheet and full-sheet broadsides, all of which are illustrated with Posada's prints.
