Cultural Revolution Poster - "Group Ugliness" Remake
Perhaps the most infamous poster originated from early Cultural Revolution, this poster titled Group Ugliness) portrayed in a cartoon drawing format, depicted one hundred Communist leaders (with names written next to the person) and “counter-revolutionary” writers post the fall of previous Chinese chairman Liu Shao Qi. The obvious explanation was that the author noted the fall of Liu Shao Qi and painted a picture to depict all the comrades that followed Liu Shao Qi’s capitalist road, however, the hidden message, which was interrupted by the Chinese Communist Party was that it named majority of the senior members of Communist Party and thus it made the CCP looked bad. The author, who was the Chinese Central Fine Art University student, was criticized for making fun of the Chinese Communist Party and the Cultural Revolution, was arrested shortly after and was imprisoned. He subsequently disappeared and was thought to be executed by the CCP. The poster, viewed as one of the best representations of the CCP leaders, was done in detail and was done so vividly even without the names next to their face, one could guess who he was painting about. A few notable communist leaders were De Xiao Ping, Liu Shao Qi, Peng De Huai, Lin Feng and Wang Ming. As recently revealed by a Chinese insider source, the author was the son of a famous Chinese historian Jian Bo Zan. Created in 1967. This particular poster was printed by the local revolutionary red guards, copying the original large “Group Ugliness” poster that was published in the news media.

Post Cultural Revolution Poster - mistakes in headlines
This poster, which was printed post 1976 and Mao's death made a detrimental mistake, it had mismatched the headlines with the content of the poster. It seems that the date and the headline had come from another poster from 1967. Titled "Celebration of the National Congress and People's Representative Meeting," and alleged published in 1967 by Shanghai Fine Art publishing house, this poster as is poses a problem. The 9th Congress meeting was conducted in the 60s, which matches the print date and the slogan, yet, this poster had the small slogan imprinted on the picture itself that indicated that Mao had already passed away and that the party was now led by Hua Guo Feng, Mao's designated successor, which would be an indication that poster was actually printed in late 1970s, after Mao's death. One explanation could be that same image was used in the 60s and then in 70s it was recycled, with the small imprints indicating the passing of Mao and the successor of Hua following Mao’s directions inside the image, but somehow the old headline that came with the 1960s poster got passed along as well unintentionally. Regardless it is curious to us as to whether it was ever distributed and if so how many were distributed? Anyone with any common history sense would immediate note the problem therein. Nonetheless the image of the poster was quite interesting and we are listing the poster here as an intriguing example of a misprint. 30" x 20".
