Anti-American Art: Class Project
I'm not exactly sure what this 1950's Chinese poster is saying about the USA, but it can't be good. Click on the image for a much larger version to see why: in the background is the bloodied carcass of a dog being stuck with pitchforks: written on the side of the dog in Chinese is "America." The classmates are earnestly working on craft projects, carefully laying out a beautifully lettered pair of banners that are also saying something not so nice about the USA. I wish I read more Chinese characters.
