POSTER COLLECTION - CHILE


The 7 posters in this collection were part of a larger cashe of political posters mainly purchased by me on 6 or 7 September 1976 when we (with IGB) visited the fabulous 'L'Unita' - the Communist Festival, in Parma, Italy.

(Visited there with IGB - we were on route from visiting Noel Hills (colleague from Central School - see Noela Hills) and her architect partner Bob who had rented a villa in Tuscany for the season.)

Originally there were more Chile posters but I seem to have lost some when I exhibited them in Australia in 1980 (check date). They are mainly original lithographic printed posters purchased from the Cuban/Chilean delegation/s at the Festival.

I believe that they were all originally produced during the time Salvadore Allende was President of Chile 3 November 1970 to 11 September 1973 (when he was assassinated by right-wing fascists in league with the CIA).
