Title: Vietnam Posters
Authors: Edited by Sherry Buchanan
viewed by the outside world, this collection of posters from the 1950s
to the present encompasses a politically significant period in
With their boldly rendered images of Ho Chi Minh
and local heroes; guerrilla fighters, tanks and bombers; factory
workers and the urban and rural landscape, these posters-many produced
in small numbers under economically adverse conditions-reverberate with
vibrant colors and innovative graphic language, revealing much about
the country's cultural and political climate.
An overview of the
David Heather collection shows how imagery from indigenous folk art,
the work of French-trained nationally acclaimed artists, as well as
Russian and Chinese propaganda styles have all influenced the unusual,
graphically diverse styles of these posters.
