socialist realism Mao poster Cultural Revn

A particularly powerful and impressive propaganda poster issued in China during the late 1970s, at the peak of the so-called Cultural Revolution. Such posters draw upon earlier Soviet Realism for their inspiration. Today, they are, of course, collectors’ pieces.This is a particularly effective example of the genre with Mao Tse Tung, heroic size, surrounded by his ‘children’ who variously display excitement, adoration and dedication.
