This is the original Gouache painting by Angus McBride.

Victoriano Huerta was dictatorial president of Mexico, whose regime united disparate revolutionary forces in common opposition to him.

Though an admirer of dictator Porfirio Díaz, General Victoriano Huerta served his successor, Francisco Madero. When part of the army in Mexico City rebelled against Madero, Huerta joined the rebels, compelled Madero to resign and assumed the presidency, establishing a military dictatorship.

His rule was repressive, and he was almost immediately confronted with opposition, which drove him out. During his time in power he conducted much of his business in bars surrounded by his toadies.

Original painted art from Look and Learn issue 529 published 4th March 1972.
