Jose Guadalupe Posada and Needle Point by Eleanor B. Roosevelt



1940s needlepoint by Eleanor B. Roosevelt (not a fan of FDR's New Deal) with an image often assigned to Posada (La Calavera Huertista) but likely NOT by Posada. From the US Library of Congress https://www.loc.gov/item/2010651022/

Very interesting article by Cara Giaimo discussing the "repurposing" of Posada's images.
