1960 'Chairman Mao loves children'


Reprint poster

Intervening years (1960-1965)

Despite the failure of the Great Leap Forward, posters continue to visualize the successes of socialism. The aggressive scenes of the previous years are replaced with more romantic images of the good life. Very often, beautiful women are shown, apparently without any specific political message. In these years of relative relaxation, more and more posters with Chairman Mao are published.
