Chinese political poster in colour depicting eleven peasants gathered in a room to listen to a Party supported lecture in Northwest China. The man next to the blackboard gives a lecture to the rest of people in the room. A world map, the Internationale song in Chinese and a model opera poster hang on the wall beyond the group.
Text right margin and blocks of text on blackboard in Chinese.

The original painting from which this poster comes was painted by the Deputy Party Branch Secretary Liu Zhigui of Jiaoxi Production Brigade, Pangguang People's Commune.
The text on blackboard reads "Issues of the political line must be discussed everyday, every month and every year".

A fine Chinese propaganda posters at the time times have clearly changed. It is the Cultural Revolution, and propaganda does its utmost to portray China as an agrarian Utopia, although the images clearly show that progress has arrived in the rural areas, as can be seen from, a.o., the western world map on the wall.
The works of amateur artists among workers and peasants were given nation-wide attention and support. These amateurs were promoted as representatives of the innate creative genius of the masses, as living proof that everyone could and should practice art. Among the best known were the peasant painters from Huxian, Shaanxi Province.
Although touted as amateurs, it was later admitted that the peasant painters had received extensive professional help and assistance, often provided by the same professional artists who were no longer allowed to work themselves. The Huxian painters' highly political paintings provided idyllic slices of the good life in the rural areas, and were peopled with happy and enthusiastic peasants engaged in agriculture, political meetings and study sessions.
