1947 The Contradiction Set
The 'Contradiction', the last known set of cartoons Huang Yao painted before leaving China. It depicted the contrasting situations between the old and the young, modern and traditional; the injustice committed by the government and military towards the civilians, the rich and the poor, the politicians, business men, scientist's view of the world and so on. The painting here is about a poor professor needing to carry water (for his own consumption?) while his students in fashionable clothes had time and mood to engage in courtship.
