Taller de Gráfica Popular

Angel Bracho... ¡Victoria! Los artistas del Taller de Gráfica Popular nos unimos al júbilo de todos los trabajadores y hombres progresistas de México y del mundo por el triunfo del glorioso Ejército Rojo y de las armas de todas las naciones unidas sobre la Alemania nazi, como el paso más trascendente para la destrucción total del fascismo (1945, poster, linoleum-block printing, Princeton University. Dept. of Rare Books and Special Collections. Graphic Arts, 2-13-G, map drawer A8). From Taller de Gráfica Popular. "...The Taller de Gráfica Popular (known as TGP) was founded 1937 by the talented Mexican artists Leopoldo Méndez, Luis Arenal, and Pablo O'Higgins. The TGP became the first self-supporting art workshop in Mexico to create and publish their own work. Their work had a variety of objectives; some overtly political, some comic, and some artistic. The Princeton University Library has collected TGP prints by Alberto Beltrán, José Chávez Morado, Francisco Mora, Rufino Tamayo, and Alfredo Zalce."

Wow. Thanks for that. I can't believe I haven't seen the Princeton digital collection before. Stellar.
