In The Spotlight: Cultural Revolution Propaganda Posters

PP1063_1_m

Unite For Victory (1971)

The Great Proletariat Cultural Revolution in China (1966-1976) was launched by the founding father of the Chinese Communist Party, Chairman Mao (Mao Zedong; 1893-1976), following the political and economic failure of his Great Leap Forward campaign (1958-1962).

Dynamic propaganda posters were produced to reach the masses, often featuring images of the leader with workers, soldiers, large red flags and slogans in bold red text.

Below are a few of our original vintage posters from the period (click on the images for more information):
