The TGP was founded in Mexico City in 1937 and although it is still in existence at present, it maintained its original form until the end of the 1950s, which will be the period focused on here. The TGP was primarily a workshop for graphic art, and produced thousands of handmade prints and posters. Images by artists of the TGP are distinguished by their sympathetic depictions of Mexican workers, their portrayals of Mexican life and history, and their focus on the effects of fascism and Nazism both in Mexico and in Europe. The TGP played a dynamic role in the development of a Mexican political art movement and a modern Mexican cultural identity.
