  • Description

    ON THE LEFT BANK IN PARIS, THE GALERIE DES ARTS IS FEATURING THE LATEST IN CHINESE ART....PROPAGANDA POSTERS FRESH FROM THE WALL OF PEKING. THEY WERE SMUGGLED OUT OF THE CHINESE CAPITAL BY A COLLECTOR FOR THE FIRST SHOWING OF ITS KIND IN THE WEST.

    THE 38 POSTERS PORTRAY VARIOUS SCENES OF THE CHINESE PEOPLE, GLORIFYING THE LIFE OF THE PEASANT AND EXTOLLING THE PEOPLE'S FIGHT AGAINST IMPERIALISM.

    EXPERTS HAVE NOTED SEVERAL INTERESTING POINTS....MAINLY A CHANGE IN PEASANT DRESS AND A NEW STYLE FOR CHAIRMAN MAO TSE-TUNG. THE UNIFORMS OF THE WOMEN ARE COLOURFUL AND VARIED, A STRONG CONTRAST TO THE DRAB BLUE GARB OF OLD. THE POSTERS OF CHAIRMAN MAO REVEAL AN OPEN SPORTING SHIRT COLLAR INSTEAD OF THE USUAL BUTTON-NECK STYLE. HIS HAT REMINDS ONE MORE OF A MEXICAN SOMBRERO THAN THE USUAL COOLIE HAT.

    THE GALLERY INTENDS TO PRINT A NUMBER OF THE POSTERS FOR SALE TO THE PUBLIC. SO FAR, THERE HAS BEEN NO COMMENT FROM THE CHINESE EMBASSY IN PARIS.
