This poster offered as a promotional giveaway in 1920s Shanghai melds the meticulous detail of traditional Chinese painting with the craft of color lithography—and a side of risque. This example is unique in that it subtly reveals a bit of lace on the older girl's dress, which was a bold statement at the time and indicates how Chinese society was opening up to new ideas at that moment. Posters like this one, influenced by the Art Deco movement in the West, recall the economic boom of early 20th century Shanghai, an international center of business and trade. Today, posters like this are prized by collectors and preserved in museum collections both for their artistry and for the unique glimpse they give of the past.
