Summary:
Eight poster-sized pieces of calendar art, reproductions of paintings by artists Jesus de Helguera, Eduardo Catano, and A. Barr. Several show the signature of Helguera in the painting, and the signatures of Catano and Barr are seen in two other items; no signatures can be found in others. Several include the printer or publisher credit, Galas de Mexico. Subjects are beautiful young women and handsome men. Several reference Aztec legends or themes. These reproductions do not contain actual calendars; apparently the calendar portion was trimmed off each item. Originally framed. The largest item also contains advertising for cigarettes, including Raleigh and other brands, plus the "Villa Hermosa" Super Carniceria.
