Abstract :
An examination of José Guadalupe Posada's extensive broadsheet work in its original context: the murders, disasters, revolts, and popular heroes that engaged the attention of the public in Mexico City in the declining years of Porfirio Diaz's dictatorship. Analyzes the sources of Posada's style in Mexican and European prints and cartoons and shows how he altered them for his own artistic purposes. Posada's broadsheets detail many stories that were front-page news at the time. Posada also illustrated the early events of the Mexican Revolution. Frank shows that Posada's outlook was that of the working class and that he depicted the stories of his day from a vantage point belonging neither to the defenders of the regime nor to its organized opposition. ;
