AP944E - Calaveras de Coyotes y Meseras, Mexican Print (30x40cm Art Print)

Art print on thick paper, image from our library of original vintage printed ephemera. The overall print size is 30x40cm (approximately 12x16 inches). There is a plain border of about 1cm around the image to allow for framing if required.

Calaveras were printed to be sold on the Mexican Day of the Dead (November 2nd) every year and the most prolific and celebrated artist responsible for these comical skeletons was J.G.Posada (1852-1913). His grinning skulls, accompanied by comic verse, depicted everyday events and celebrated Mexican life in every form.

Posada was employed by print maker Antonio Arroyo, who hawked his prints around the streets and at any public gatherings. His topical verse was illustrated by striking design, often on coloured paper, which was bought by the literate and illiterate alike.
