Lorenzo Homar Collection

Princeton University Library Digital Collections: Lorenzo Homar Collection

Born in San Juan, Lorenzo Homar is arguably Puerto Rico's greatest graphic artist. He passed away in 2004, and his career included his work with the Puerto Rican Arts Center (which he helped found), the House of Cartier, and a broad range of posters and drawings. This excellent digital collection from the Princeton University Library includes many of these works, including a sketchbook from his days in the U.S. Army, a host of caricatures, and over 90 posters. Getting started here is easy, and visitors can just click on the "page images" button to begin their journey. Visitors can use the "Show" tab to look through the images from the sketchbook and other items, and they can also use a set of navigation buttons to make their way through the collection. >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2010.
