This is a Chinese anti US imperialism and anti Soviet Revisionism poster, approx.29x20 inches. Circa 1973, woodcut, red color. The poster designs was based on the background both of the PTBT ( Partial Test Ban Treaty, 1963) and the Sino-Soviet diplomatic splits. Reads- "Overconfident" (left), "The anger against imperialism" (torch). Satire graphic, Nikita Khrushchev (bald), other two probably are Lyndon B. Johnson and Alec Dougals-Home of UK (held mask up). The Cultural Revolution which took place between circa 1966 and 1976 was a social/ political movement. Mao Tse Tung, then Chairman of the ruling Communist Party started this movement to reinforce strict communist dogma. Capitalism and traditional Chinese culture were to be obliterated. Big-character posters were used to denounce people as opponents of the Revolution. Red Guards (pupils and students who swear loyalty to Mao and his Little Red Book) destroy anything that is branded 'old' and eliminate people considered 'rightists'. The posters also were part of the campaign to respond to particular issues as they arose locally or nationally. The Cultural Revolution plunges China into turmoil and internal strife; the country is in chaos, but the posters only show enthusiasm. Nice condition.
