Get a collector’s piece of Expressionism and POP Art. In the 1970s Andy Warhol showed a great deal of interest in the Chinese political situation and was fascinated “ that the only picture they ever show of Chairman Mao Zedong is a photograph from his famous Little Red Book – ‘The thoughts of Chairman Mao. “It’s great. It looks like a silkscreen”. To this fascination Warhol created nearly 200 portraits of the communist leader based on a that Little Red Book photo.
He exhibited many of them at the Hokin Gallery, Chicago in 1977, the year the Cultural Revolution in China officially ended following Mao’s death in 1976.
What is for sale is a beautiful cherry wood framed original exhibition poster announcing that gallery show. It is in mint condition and is extremely rare. Until I looked on EBay today I had never seen this one for sale. Search on EBay for Warhol Mao Poster and find the unframed poster for $900! Warhol’s original exhibition posters are also there and are in great demand.
I am selling mine for $450. You collect, or need a gift for one who does? This is a great piece.
Framed, the dimensions are 31" by 44"
