Description: ARTIST: L. MITSCHEK SIZE: 49 1/2 x 37 1/2 in./125.8 x 95.3 cm PRINTER: Braun & Schwenke, Wien DESCRIPTION: Formed by Karl Luegar in 1893, the Christian Social Party was a conservative Austrian political party largely influenced by the church. At the time of this poster it had the largest following in the country, and had taken on a distinctly anti-Semitic stance. Here, the Party removes the blindfolds on the masses to expose how they are tied to marionette strings held by corrupt politicians and the dissolute wealthy. The "giant of the people" delivers a punch, the force of which will send them careening over a cliff. (Propaganda)
