A mounted print based on Two Owls by Huang Yongyu, 1924.

In 1974 the artist Huang Yongyu had exhibited a painting of two owls, one of which had one eye closed. He was vilified by Jiang Qing for this painting as an affront to Chinese Communism. He painted 'Auspicious and Inauspicious Owls' to celebrate the downfall of the Gang of Four. At the end of the Revolution and after the arrest of the Gang of Four, including Mao’s wife Jiang Qing (1914-91), Huang Yongyu painted Two Owls. In the inscription he ridicules his former critics.
