Venezuela 1931: 4.000.000 inhabitants

Aug 05, 1931

Miguel Gómez Medina (1910 – 1960) was a Mexican illustrator and graphic artist active in the first half of the 20th century to about 1960. Gomez is the most significant Mexican proponent of the Golden Age of Pictorial Mapmaking (c. 1920 – 1960) with several significant large format pictorial maps of various parts of Mexico and Guatemala to his name.
Medina was a versatile artist capable of work in a variety of different styles, with some of his work being akin to English pictorial map pioneer MacDonald Gill and other pieces reminiscent of the French illustrator Lucian Boucher.
In addition to large format poster maps, Medina also issued map postcards, including one of Guatemala and another of Canada.
Medina's maps and postcards were typically published by Athenaeum Fischgrund Publishing. Little is known of Medina's personal life.
