Mexican illustrator José Guadalupe Posada (1851 - 1913) is best remembered for his calaveras, representations of the human skull and skeleton seen in Mexico's annual celebration the Day of the Dead ( Día de Muertos; October 31st - November 2nd).
Posada began creating calaveras in 1880 for publication in Antonio Vanegas Arroyo's inexpensive coloured broadsides sold in markets, on the streets and at festivals.
Posada depicted animated skeletons at work, dancing, playing instruments, mourning the dead, illustrating rhyming ballads (corridos) and stories about love affairs.
