In 1942 Mao Zedong declared that all art and literature should serve politics first and art second. During the Cultural Revolution (1966–76) this policy was implemented vigorously. Visual imagery of the leader and his state propaganda appeared everywhere – on large posters or small papercuts and on items of everyday use.
