Summary:
This commemorative poster depicts the Rey Momo, or king of Puerto Rican carnival, a celebration which started on the island in the mid nineteenth century. Connected to Spanish carnival traditions, it takes place the week before the beginning of Lent, which is a traditional period of fasting and general abstinence in the Christian calendar. The carnival in San Juan was for many years a very important and picturesque event. (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)
