This great vintage poster was made to celebrate Copenhagen's 800 years birthday with a large exithibion.
As Copenhagen was (officially) founded in 1167 which was in the Midevil period, the poster displays a man (possibly a visitor to the exhibition) wearing a knight's armor. The little kid believes the man in the armor to be a real knight which causes both surprise and excitement.
The exhibition was called "København Før og Nu" (Copenhagen Then and Now) and was held in the Bella Center (an exhibition and conference center in Copenhagen).
The poster artist, Ib Antoni (1929-1973), is a quite famous artist and received many prizes during his 20 year career. He created more than 300 posters in his career and among them is several Tivoli Garden, Visit Denmark and Wonderful Copenhagen posters. Smiling people was among Antoni's favorite subjects and his line was always happy and romantic which makes this poster quite true to his cheerful style.
Overall this is a great vintage poster featuring good vibrations along a creative artwork by one of Denmark's most beloved artists.
Thanks a lot for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
