Mexico has a long and proud tradition of caricature drawing and making fun of anything, so of course Death and the vanity of human beings are also a topic for caricature.
The figure of La Catrina, or La Calavera Garbancera as the figure was originally called, was created by the artist José Guadalupe Posada and later named by the famous muralista Diego Rivera who painted her, amongst others, in Una tarde dominical.
The figure first served as an illustration for satirical articles at the time of the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), as a satire over wealth and human vanity (an elegant and well-dressed man was called a Catrín ).
La Catrina has gradually become an essential part of Mexican culture, not least as a symbol of Mexico's special relation to death, about which José Guadalupe Posada should have said:
La muerte, es democrática, ya que a fin de cuentas, güera, morena, rica o pobre, toda la gente acaba siendo calavera.
The caricature museum pays tribute to the old masters in their regular exhibition.
