Chinese Propaganda Posters


Today I had brief 30 minute flirtation with a big poster book of Chinese Propaganda Posters. You can view the entire collection here. My favourite one is shown above and is called "The Big Watermelon". It was painted by Zheng Xuexin in 1983 and sold for 0.16 Yuan. The poster aims to express the joy of children as China benefited from increased agricultural production.
