'Long Live Revolutionary China'; Moscow, 1927

poster printed in blue, red and black ink, depicting black and white photographic portraits of Chinese leaders, street scenes of Canton and a map of China.

This Russian poster proclaims support for the revolutionary struggle in China. Sun Yat Sen, the leader of the Chinese nationalist party (Kuomintang) is depicted in the centre of the poster, surrounded by other Chinese leaders. Under Lenin's leadership in the 1920s, Russia expressed her support for Sun Yat Sen and the nationalist cause, hoping they would bring about the end of imperial rule in China.
