Figures with red banners

  • Description

    This is one of a set of four posters promoting the Cultural Revolution through slogans and rallies, produced a few months before Mao’s death and based on oil paintings in the 1967 Red guard exhibition ‘Long Live the Victory of Chairman Mao’s Revolutionary Line’. The slogan painted on the road in the foreground denounces Liu Shaoqi (1898–1969), Chairman of the People’s Republic from 1959–68. During the Cultural Revolution Liu Shaoqi and Deng Xiaoping were both denounced, and considered by Mao to be leading capitalist roadsters
