Genius and figures, caricature portraits by Ernesto García Cabral
Ernesto “El Chango” Cabral was a Mexican artist who stood out as one of the best cartoonists in our country. His cartoons were published in newspapers such as Excelsior and Novedades, as well as in magazines such as La Tarántula, Frivolidades, Semanario Ilustrador, Multicolor, and mainly on the covers of Revista de Revistas.
This exhibition highlights the caricature portrait genre that the artist explored for decades. The exhibition also includes portraits and the publications in which the important persons caricatured by the artist appear.
