Physical description

Linocut print on brown paper entitled 'Nadie debe lamentarse por muerte de sus amores'. A group of four skeletons surround a man seated at a table drinking shots. Also on the table is a salt shaker, and pencil and pad. The skeletons make up a mariachi band with two guitars, one trumpet and a female singer. The man looks completely disinterested and sits resting his head on one hand, wearing a wide brimmed hat. Across the top of the sheet is an inscription in Spanish, and in the bottom left is the artist's monogram with the symbol of a coyote and the date.
