At the left the prototype of the older farmer, who looks a lot like Chen Yonggui, party secretary of the model agricultural commune of Dachai. The young woman at the right carries Mao's 'Talks at the Yan'an forum on literature and art' in her pocket. She resembles a famous actress from the Revolutionary Operas of these years. Posters like these, with texts in English, French and German, were meant for the foreign market.
A full colour postcard reproduction of this poster is available. See the postcard reproductions-page on this site.
