José Guadalupe Posada (February 2, 1852 – January 20, 1913) was a Mexican political printmaker and engraver. His work has influenced many Latin American artists and cartoonists with its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaveras and bones to make political and cultural critiques. Prints from the University of Wyoming Art Museum’s Collection will be on display. The University of Wyoming Art Museum presents and collects world-class art and objects by regional, national and international artists and art from the American West.
