A very stylish figurative graphic art by the Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd.
The poster was published as an exhibition poster for an art exhibition at Randers Kunstmuseum in Denmark.
Oscar Reutersvärd (1915-2002) was a Swedish graphic artist, who in 1934 pioneered the art of 3D drawings that may initially appear feasible, yet cannot be physically constructed. He is sometimes described as "the father of the impossible figure", although there are much older examples, e.g. Hogarth's Satire on False Perspective, in addition to more recent well known example of the Penrose triangle and some others.
The poster is very typical for Reutersvärd with its simple lines and a graphical "impossible figures".
