The poster titled "New House in the Mountain Village" depicts the late afternoon, as the workday for the production brigade draws to a close. The responsibility of preparing dinner at home falls upon a female educated youth (known as a "zhiqing"), who has taken extra care to cook a delicious meal and set out water for washing. Eagerly positioned at the doorway, she stands on tiptoes, rubbing her hands together, awaiting the return of her fellow zhiqing comrades from their work.

The image encapsulates the essence of a typical zhiqing settlement from that era. The young woman is clad in a small-collared military uniform, sporting an emblem on her chest and donning green liberation shoes. Behind her, a blackboard bears the inscription of revolutionary quotes, while the door frames showcase couplets that read: "Establishing roots in the countryside, dedicated to revolution." In the distance, terraced fields of vibrant green crops stretch out, and a flock of swallows flit about in lively flight, capturing the picturesque ambiance of rural village life.

This artistic creation vividly portrays the determination of educated youth to leave behind the comforts of urban life, resolve to relocate to mountainous villages, and establish new lives rooted in rural areas.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
