Shanghai renmin yishu chubanshe, Shanghai. 1964, 20.75x30 inch poster depicting women in colorful traditional costumes of the local region (close to the Anhui-Zhejiang border) elegantly posing in front of the Xin'an River Dam. Edge tears at right margin have been backed with pieces of white paper in an amateur repair, which would be covered in a frame. Minor soil to text at bottom, a small streak of soil amid the flowing water coursing down the front of the dam. A striking design taking the old genre of "Lovely ladies posing in nature" and giving it a hydroelectric spin. Pang Ka (known in English as Karl Bang) later came to the US and has become known for his sensuous paintings of women.
