Stefan Landsberger's Chinese Propaganda Poster Pages Citation:
This site is dedicated to the Chinese propaganda poster as it has been produced from 1949 till the present day. So-called propaganda art has played a major supporting role in the many campaigns that were designed to mobilize the people, and throughout the People's Republic, the propaganda poster has been the favored vehicle through which art conveyed model behavior. I've been collecting these Chinese political posters for many years now, and have brought together quite a nice collection of some 1,900 titles, spanning more than five decades of Chinese poster production. From time to time, new sections will be added, devoted to the political, social and economic movements and developments that have found their way into visual propaganda over the years. As my collection expands over time, existing sections will expand as well in order to include more or better posters that I have acquired.http://www.iisg.nl/~landsberger more Language: eng English
Japanese Prints: The Dutch in Nagasaki : Red-Haired BarbariansCitation:
From the 1630s to the middle of the nineteenth century, Japan was practically closed to foreigners. The only Westerners allowed to stay in Japan and engage in trade were the Dutch. They had to submit to very strict regulations, however, and were only allowed to live on Deshima, a small artificial island in Nagasaki harbor.
This is a digital exhibition of a collection of 40 Japanese woodblock prints published between 1800 and 1865, depicting Dutch traders in Nagasaki. Now extremely rare, at the time of their publication the prints were sold as souvenirs to Japanese who visited Nagasaki and perhaps hoped to catch a glimpse of these strange 'red-haired barbarians'.
These prints are documents of a unique episode in Dutch trading history, and represent an early period in the art of the Japanese woodcut. Above all the prints show the amazement with which the Japanese looked at Westerners. The Dutch are depicted as pale, ugly, red-haired barbarians with large noses. The ships the Dutch used and the exotic animals they brought caused much astonishment and admiration.
In 1804, a Russian envoy visited Nagasaki in an attempt to obtain trading rights. He failed, but was portrayed in prints. It was only in 1858 that the Russians, Americans, French, and English were granted the same rights as the Dutch. They settled in Yokohama, a fishing village close to Tokyo. Prints were also created of this settlement, some examples are shown.
A few prints in the collection of 40 have other subjects. These are also shown here. For further information, some books and links are suggested.http://www.iisg.nl/exhibitions/japaneseprints/index.html more Language: dut Dutch; Flemish, eng English
