Comments¶ One of the famous calaveras images by José Guadalupe Posada (1851-1913), the renowned Mexican printmaker and illustrator. La Calavera del Tenorio depicts a scene from a Don Juan drama, set in a cemetery, in which Don Juan confronts the ghost of the father of one of his romantic conquests (Tyler).
