[Mexico: n.p.] 1947–1981. Collection of 60 Mexican bullfighting posters / broadsides, mostly dating from the 1960s and 1970s, ranging in size from 15 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches to 25 x 18 inches. An excellent study in late 20th century art and advertising, the images combine the traditional bullfighting imagery of Spain with the vibrant commercial graphics of 1970s Mexico. Illustrations by artists John Fulton, Reynaldo Torres, R. Basso, and D. Cardenas, among others. Includes advertisements for fights at the Plaza Monumental, El Toreo de Tijuana, and La Plaza de los Toros, and announcements for performances by El Cordobes, Alfredo Leal, and Mario Mareno Cantinflas. Uniformly near fine condition overall; some individual pieces may have slight edgewear; an exceedingly bright and compelling collection.
