Poster of exhibition of artist Federico Heraclio Cantú Garza (Monterrey, 1907 – Mexico City 1989) a noted painter, engraver and sculptor, considered to be a member of the Mexican muralism movement although more academic and traditional. This original advertising poster was designed for his first exhibition in Mexico. Between 1924 into the mid 1930's he traveled in Europe and the United States, and was strongly influenced by the works of Picasso. At this time he lived in the Rue Delambre, in Montparnasse. As a professional artist, Cantu went on to paint many religious scenes, nudes, harlequins, portraits, and in his later years, he became a sculptor.
