description

This portrait of Porfirio Diaz is from the 1910s. Diaz served as Mexican President for several terms between 1876 and 1911. He is a controversial figure, having brought internal stability on one hand but repressing his critics on the other hand. Diaz was overthrown during the Mexican Revolution and fled to France. He died in Paris in 1915.
