Chinese Posters: Art from the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Cultural Revolution in China produced thousands of powerful social and political posters exhorting the Chinese people in a sweeping transformation of Chinese society. These brilliantly colorful images of cultural celebration, industrial development, agricultural production, and revolutionary heroes were displayed in homes and public spaces across the country. Chinese Posters collects more than 150 of the most striking of these posters and offers background on their social and political context and production. An essay by Ann Tompkins provides a personal account of living in Beijing during the Cultural Revolution.

Book News Annotation:

Tompkins lived in Beijing for nearly five years at the beginning of the 1966-76 Cultural Revolution, and bought political posters as they were being published. Over 500 now form the Ann Tompkins (Tang Fandi) and Lincoln Cushing Chinese Poster Collection at the University of California at Berkeley's East Asian Library. Cushing is a Berkeley-based historian and activist of social and political graphics. They provide a substantial introduction to reproductions in brilliant color; captions identify the title, artist, publisher, date, and size.
