"Ricardo Moros Urbina (1865-1942) has been recognized mainly for his work as an engraver of the "Papel Periódico Ilustrado", a publication in Bogota at the end of the 19th century, pioneer of journalistic nature and the massive reproduction of graphic art through xylographic engraving. In this area, Moros and the team of cartoonists, photographers, and engravers of the newspaper, under the direction of Alberto Urdaneta, illustrated the political, cultural and social life of the country, but also stopped to look at the Santafe that slowly disappeared into the changing Bogota of the late 19th century and early 20th century. This is perhaps one of the most interesting features of Moros, but at the same time the least known: his interest in the values of the past and his defense of how to integrate the historical past with urban development" (HKB Translation) --Page 6.
