Museo José Guadalupe Posada information
Lonely Planet review
The fascinating Museo José Guadalupe Posada is on the north side of Jardín El Encino. Aguascalientes native Posada (1852−1913) was in many ways the founder of modern Mexican art. His engravings and satirical cartoons broadened the audience for art in Mexico, highlighted social problems and were a catalyst in the later mural phase. Posada’s hallmark is the calavera (skull or skeleton) and many of his calavera engravings have been widely reproduced. There’s also a permanent exhibition of work by Posada’s predecessor Manuel Manilla (1830−90).
