[Archive]: A Collection of Six Vietnamese Silk Screen Posters
[No place]: Phong phu [?]. [circa 1975]. Six original silk screen posters. Each measures about 15.5" x 18.5". Each is printed in six colors vibrant colors: purple, burgundy red, orange, blue, green, and gold. A very few short tears at some edges, else fine. A suite of compelling images of young women in traditional informal dress, four of which depict a woman being courted by a young man, and two that depict a pair of young women working together outside: one in a rice paddy field and one at the ocean. Each poster has two lines of text. Our Vietnamese is rusty, but the two lines of text appear to be couplets from proverbial items of folk wisdom pertaining to the agonies or follies of budding love, or couplets from the erotic poetry of Ho Xuan Huong, a famous female Vietnamese poet from the late 18th and early 19th Centuries. In particular Huong's poem "Bailing Water" closely reflects the poster depicting two women on a rocky coast maneuvering a bail between them with ropes, that they are dipping into the water of a river as it flows into the ocean. A rare set of somewhat mildly suggestive charged propaganda posters. .
