José Guadalupe Posada Class Projects



Born in Aguascalientes, Mexico, José Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913) is best known for his satirical and humorous illustrations of Mexican society. His influence as an illustrator and printmaker made a lasting impression on the prominent painter Diego Rivera as well as many other future artists.

Posada's illustrated broadsides (broad sheets) are held in the USC Libraries Boeckmann Center for Iberian & Latin American Studies in USC Libraries Special Collections. 


This site contains class projects based on the study of Posada's prints, including broadsides, chapbooks, and calaveras, and is a pilot project between the USC Libraries and SPAN 220 classes in the USC Dornsife College Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures.
