Catalogue Note

The text reads:

Quotations from Chairman Mao: Talks at the Yenan Forum on Literature and Art (miss reading one day, have troubles [red ink seal miss reading two day, go downhill [red ink seal])

Our literature and art should serve the millions and tens of millions of working people. For comrades engaged in literature and artistic work in the anti-Japanese base areas, it might seem that this problem is already solved and needs no further discussion, actually that is not the case. (miss reading three day, can't go on [red ink seal])

Calligraphy by Xu Bing, two thousand and three (one seal of the artist).
