When I first saw this poster I thought the message was to provoke. The obvious scene seen is the classical Dutch travel poster depicting a old windmill but then a naked girl on a bike sneaked in - stealing the picture.
What I think (thinking of the late 1960s) is that the poster artist wants to show us that a new ear is emerging. A new youth, a new generation with new thoughts, ideas and also and alternative way of communicate. This communication is clearly seen here. The fact that nudity in public (and on print) likely was regarded as anormal and the combination with a national treasure must have been quite up scene back in 1967.
The girl on the bike must have been cold during the shooting since the photo was taking an early morning in March. I cannot figure if the girl is wear a wig and sunglasses to hide her identity or if it suppose to add to artwork.
Overall this poster marks the beginning of "the counterculture of the 1960s" which was a very important time period in the Western world. With that said, this poster is both art, history, provocation and beauty as one.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
