Jose Guadalupe Posada and the Mexican Broadside

Catalog Number: 
Book Posada
Date: 
2006
Edition: 
First
Abstract: 
This book features a variety of examples from the Art Institute of Chicago's collection of works by Jose Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913), the preeminent Mexican broadside artist. Broadsides, a mainstay of the late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century Mexican penny press, were colorful, graphically powerful handbills treating a variety of themes, produced by publishers in collaboration with graphic artists like Posada. A critical essay by Posada Project guest curator Donna Miliotes (featured in both English and Spanish) analyzes Posada and his art in the context of his biography, his era, his politics, and the genre of the broadside. Published in conjunction with a two-part Art Institute exhibit (June 24-September 25, 2006; October 7, 2006-January 17, 2007).
