(88.6 × 52.2 cm). Like the one in the Museo de Arte de Ponce and in the UPR. This is a poster commemorating the assassination of the university student. 1970, a group of students, protesting the presence of the ROTC on campus, were met by police, ordered to take over the campus and quell the student protesters. Antonia was on a balcony watching the clash between the police and the students.
At one point she saw a police officer brutally hitting a female student and screamed Assasins! Another officer present looked up at the balcony to identify the source of the scream, took out his gun and shot her. The bullet didn't only pass-through Antonia's head but injured another student who was with her.
Her death had island-wide impact and became symbolic of the police-brutality of the time. The top of the poster is Martorell's drawn representation of Antonia Martínez Lagares's face with a red, flower-like design, in the location where she was shot by the police. At the bottom, in eight distinct squares, are the faces, front and side views, depicting the "leaders" who were seen as responsible for the circumstances that led to the strikes, and therefore, her death. The Commander of the ROTC.Richard Nixon, President of the U. In the bottom, left-hand corner of the poster is Martorell's signature and the logo of his workshop, Taller Alacrán. Condition Issues: Mainly on the edges of the poster. Please see pics under magnification. The black, brush stroke on the top right-hand edge is original to the piece. Only issue on the picture itself is a small crease (pic #7). Please contact me with any questions and happy eBaying! This item is in the category "Art\Art Prints".
