Puerto Rico -- 20th century
Scope and Contents:
This Christmas poster focuses on the figure of St. Michael the Archangel, militantly brandishing his sword surrounded by Puerto Rican cultural emblems: traditional musical instruments and the Three Kings. Lacking any text other than the year indicates that this is an artist proof [A/P]. Artists would purposefully produce a small numbers of posters without any message to have a print that focused just on the design. (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)
In the exhibition "Posters from the Division of Community Education (DIVEDCO) of Puerto Rico, 1948-1989," Sept. 17, 2008-Jan. 18, 2009, at the Smithsonian's S. Dillon Ripley Center.
