Leopoldo Méndez (1902 - 1969)

El Embajador Lane Wilson "Arregla" el Conflicto, 1947
13 x 9.75 in (33.02 x 24.76 cm)
The American ambassador Lane Wilson playing with toy figures referring to his meddling in the affairs of Mexico, from the portfolio 'Estampas de la Revolución Mexicana' (prints of the Mexican Revolution). The American diplomat Henry Lane Wilson was appointed ambassador to Mexico in 1910. He purportedly assisted in arranging the 1913 murder of Francisco Madero, the revolutionary who succeeded Díaz as president. Wilson is believed to have hatched the plot with Victoriano Huerta, who had a military career in the Díaz government, and then became a supporter of Madero, only to betray him. The toy figurine held by Wilson in this print represents Huerta and refers to unwanted American intervention in Mexican politics. The figures in the right side are Madero and Zapata.
