Originally our blog followed the documentary film Searching for Posada--ART and Revolutions and it still does but now reports the latest José Guadalupe Posada events, exhibitions, film screenings and more from the Posada Art Foundation and others! www.posada-art-foundation.com
In this image attributed to Posada we are given the story of Santa Maria de Guadalupe and the four apparitions associated with her. Because the printing plates were reusable the Vanegas Arroyo printing house could seemingly issue new broadsides but with different text/type for occasions related to a particular saint or religious holiday. This was one way to keep costs down in the competitive market for their publications.
