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

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