A very very very very beautiful poster!
Here is a poster I wanted for a long time and finally I managed to find it. I was almost about to keep it but I already have to many posters (says my wife).
Anyway, you are looking at a Danish exhibition poster made in 1952 by the Danish artist Ib Andersen. The exhibition was set up in the gallery of Charlottenborg in Copenhagen (Denmark) in the summer of 1952.
The exhibition is called "Skatte fra det Fjerne hjembragt af Danske" which can be translated into "treasures from far away brought home by Danes". The treasures on the poster looks like they come from places like China and Japan and the magnificent color scheme used by the artist also suggest colors from the Far East region.
The artwork for this poster was created by the Danish cartoonist, graphical artist and architect Ib Andersen (1907 - 1969). Andersen is probably best known for making this poster along with a poster for DDL (The Danish Aviation Company). In the 1930s he was part of the juicy and powerful expression, where enthusiasm for the new currents grip on himself and how his own work reached absolute heights in both color palette and bold compositions. Nobody else in Denmark could draw the special Danish summer night sky, the yellow-green color, fade to light blue and color of the ivory black, with a dark wood in silhouette from the villa road gardens, sporadically lit by the road's street lights.
Andersen is differently one of the greatest and influential graphical artist (and there are many) that Denmark ever mustered!
