Food shortages and bread queues resulting from the agrarian policies of communist dictator Nicolae Ceauÿescu were a key factor in precipitating revolution in Romania. The loaves of bread illustrated on this poster for the democratic elections in 1990 hold out the promise of a better future. However the realist style of the poster and the radiating party emblem maintain some visual continuity with official propaganda from before the revolution.
