In 1952, Chinese railway workers made great efforts to manufacture the first steam locomotive, also named ‘August 1st’. The painting “Locomotive Doctor” shows the optimism and fighting spirit of the railway workers.
This ink wash painting was created by Chinese artist Li Keran, inspired by “Changsha” - one of the best-known poems by the late Chairman Mao Zedong. The poem expresses an “optimistic vision of the future of the revolution and the motherland.”
