Exciting New Poster Donation

170 stunning Chinese woodcuts from 1966-1969 were donated last week by David Kunzle, UCLA art historian and CSPG Board member. These powerful graphics were made during the early years of the Cultural Revolution, and feature Mao, international solidarity and opposition to the Viet Nam War. David was invited to China to speak about Rodolphe Töpffer, a 19th century Swiss writer-artist, considered to be the father of the comic strip and the graphic novel, at an conference on the comic and animation.
