The Cultural Revolution in Images -- Caricature-Posters from Guangzhou 1966-1977

Before the Cultural Revolution, Peng Zhen 彭真 (1902-1997) was a member of the CCP Central Secretariat and the mayor of Beijing. He became one of the first victims of the Cultural Revolution for his association to the “Peng-Luo-Lu- Yang” clique. For this reason, in the cartoons he is often depicted together with Peng Dehuai (1898-1974) and with the Minister of Culture Lu Dingyi (1906-1996).
