El Mosquito was launched on May 24, 1863. In the more than 1,500 issues published between then and the last issue in 1893, the newspaper satirized the behavior of local politicians. Published on Sundays, the newspaper consisted of four pages, with the two middle pages exclusively dedicated to lithographs that caricatured current events and important figures of the day. The front and back pages were set aside for columns with satirical text, particularly "Los picotones," which offered harsh and informed commentary on contemporary events. Starting in 1880, the front page displayed the "Galería contemporánea,” lithographic portraits of eminent leaders in Argentine society or eye-catching caricatures that sought to shock potential readers. Between 1875 and 1890, the Frenchman Henri Stein was the owner-manager of El Mosquito, in addition to being its main artist. Description based on that from the World Digital Library.
