    Opening Saturday, June 11, 2022, The Hyde Collection presents Legendary Printmaker of Mexico: José Guadalupe Posada

    José Posada (1852-1913) dominated Mexico’s first communications revolution in the late nineteenth century. His art was ubiquitous, published in daily newspapers, cheap paperback books, board games, advertising flyers, revolutionary broadsides, and religious tracts. His Calaveras or skeletons became iconic. By visually combining an indigenous reverence for the dead with a devout Catholic veneration of the souls of the departed, he created humorous, satirical, and insightful commentaries on the issues of the day that influenced such later artists as Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. The exhibition was organized by the Catalina Island Museum in association with the Posada Art Foundation.

    The exhibition is open to the public from June 11⁠–⁠September 18, 2022.
