DescriptionVIETNAMESE WAR PROPAGANDA POSTER PAINTING
Hoan Ho Mien Bac Thang To, c. 1960s
Acrylic on paper
25 x 18.5 in.
The method of mixing party fervor with art began with Ho Chi Minh's rousing 1951 directive, and the effects are still seen on the streets of Vietnam today. Propaganda art is not "high art," but something produced to motivate -- a conduit of information, intended to get a message across as clearly as possible. These paintings were created during the war years and were produced using scarce materials. Vietnamese propaganda art is unlike that of any other nation. The art is unique and starting to be recognized world-wide. In its heyday during the war, both art and the entire country were in upheaval, and the images produced were most evocative. This might be the only time you see original art like this offered at auction. This slogan in this painting translates as, "Hurray to the North's great victory, 4000 American war planes shot down."
