A Mexican Century

Prints from the Taller de Gráfica Popular

On display through Feb 18, 2018 at the New Mexico History Museum

Following the Mexican Revolution, artists came to see the ancient and folk art of Mexico in new light. Building on the foundation of their predecessors Jose Guadalupe Posada and Manuel Manilla, the new generation printmakers of the Taller de Gráfica Popular, or “People’s Graphic Workshop,” used their craft to promote the “progressive and democratic interests of the Mexican people, especially in the fight against fascist reaction.” The main products of their presses were posters, portfolios, fine prints, handbills and even children’s books - printed in woodcut, linoleum and lithography.

Also on exhibit at the New Mexico History Museum
