Jose Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913), a Mexican graphic artist, lived during one of Mexico's most chaotic times. The graphic illustrations he produced for the 'broadsheets', the tabloids of the day, distributed on the streets of Mexico City became icons of Revolutionary Mexico, portraying murder, suicides, robberies, and disasters endured by the citizens, especially the Mestizo, of Mexico City.
