The Hashish Girl

Sture Johannesson
“Revolution Means Revolutionary Consciousness”, (1968)
Art description:

The poster was made as paraphrase on Eugene Delacroix famous painting Liberty Leading the People, 1848. Instead of a woman showing her breast holding a gun and a banner, on the poster there is a naked woman holding a peace pipe and a sun feather with the text “Revolution Means Revolutionary Consciousness”. Notably is also the hemp leaf and the small bubbles of Che Guevara’s head rising from
a the pipe. A small version of the Liberty Leading the People is included in the poster. It indicated a pacifist alternative to the romance of violence surrounding the armed struggle demanded by the revolution.
