Catrina´s

José Guadalupe Posada (February 2, 1852 – January 20, 1913[1]) 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.

Posada’s best known works are his calaveras, which often assume various costumes, such as the Calavera de la Catrina, the “Skull of the Female Dandy“, which was meant to satirize the life of theupper classes during the reign of Porfirio Díaz. Most of his imagery was meant to make a religious or satirical point. Since his death, however, his images have become associated with the Mexicanholiday Día de los Muertos, the “Day of the Dead“.
