ART HISTORY MEME → [1/8] Artists
José Guadalupe Posada, 1852-1913 

La Calavera Catrina (c. 1910-1913) | The Birth of Venus (1913) | La Calavera de Don Quijote (1905) | La Calavera de Don Folias y El Negrito (date unknown) | La Calavera Huertista (c. 1910)

Born to working-class parents of indigenous descent, Posada became one of Mexico’s greatest engravers and political satirists, and is considered by many to be the founder of modern Mexican art and aesthetics. He is best known for his calaveras, which he set in scenes of political satire. Posada’s artistic style and and expression for the political concerns of Mexico’s working classes greatly inspired the style of Diego Rivera, who later paid homage to Posada in his mural Dream of a Sunday Afternoon.

As long as within society a possessing and a non-possessing group of human beings face one another in enmity, the state will be indispensable to the possessing minority for the protection of its privileges.

It’s so infuriating how Michael Brown, a seventeen year old boy who was brutally murdered, gets “he was no angel” in his fucking obituary but joan rivers who literally wished an entire group of people death gets a week of mourning and footage of her working at soup kitchens a billion years ago
