The painting replaces the founding ceremony of the People’s Republic of China, by Mao Zedong on October 1, 1949, in Tian’anmen Square, in a festive Chinese New Year’s metaphorical space with traditional bright colors of folk art.
The painting was modified several times as a result of purges at the top of the Communist Party and rehabilitations.
