About The Poster: The history of every country can clearly be seen through its posters. Nowhere is this truer than in the case of China - a vast country with a rich and diverse history of poster art. Perhaps this was because posters presented an effective and colorful means of communicating messages to a broad multi-lingual population, or perhaps it was because, as always, posters could convey in images what politicians could only hint at in speeches—whatever the reasons, Chinese propaganda poster art is a niche market in and of itself. This is a lovely poster for a Chinese hat factory for men - we love the naive way the men and the hats are shown - great colors!

This poster comes from the private collection of a noted author, collector and lecturer who has travelled widely in China and around the world. His poster collection is massive, and his knowledge quite legendary. He recently put together an exhibition of Chinese posters which was shown in national museums in Canada, France and Italy and we are pleased and proud to have been asked to sell his posters.
