Study of Mao Horses

Study of Mao Horses


Salvador Dali

Preparatory watercolor and ink drawing for the “Chevaux de Mao Tse Tung” illustrated by Salvador Dali during the May 1968 small revolution that took place in Paris after the Chinese Cultural Revolution, started in 1966.

This political satire emphasizes the idea of Liberty, and particularly: this study of horses where you see these animals go in all kinds of directions, without cavalier, without reins.

There is a wonderful movement of freedom that resonates as an happy and humorous counterpart to Mao Zedong’s controlling on his people.
