Mexican and Latin American Prints

During the 20th century, a new crop of political printmakers rose to prominence in Mexico. Inspired by the earlier work ofJosé Guadalupe Posada, and Manuel Manilla, whose eye-catching broadsides enticed a nation of working class citizens to pay attention to political and social issues, this new generation of artists turned to the power of the presses to spread their message. Founded in 1937 by Leopold Mendez, Luis Arenal, and Pablo O'Higgins, the Taller de Gráfica Popular (TGP) was a monumental force in 20th century Mexico. The TGP published flyers (volantes) and posters (carteles), combining text and image to form powerful political statements. It was also the first political publishing workship in Mexico to offer works of art for sale, through its daughter organization La Estampa Mexicana. Today graphic works from this period are powerful reminders of the political, economic, and social realities of 20th century Mexico, as well as testaments to the ingenuity of a generation of passionate, masterful advocates for change.
