An absolutely gorgeous poster by the Danish artist Bjørn Wiinblad.
I was not able to find any information on the poster but I believe it was made sometimes during the 1960s as the image looks a lot like Wiinblad's style from that period. Also the the poster was made a serigraph indicates that the poster is at least 50 years old.
The poster could have been made as an advertisement for a Christmas exhibition or show. The lady with the chandelier in her head reminds me of the parades on Saint Lucy's Day (13 December) where children in Denmark go on parades with candles in their hands. The "Lucy's bride" has a sort of wreath with candles in it - like the lady on this poster.
Because the poster is made as a serigraph it means the colors looks very vibrant and the quality of the print is very high.
The craft of Wiinblad is often colorful, lush and full of humor. He was inspired by the sumptuous oriental style far from the Nordic stylish line. This artwork is differently true to his special line.
The views on his works are to this day very divided, but interest in his finer things are unrelenting - especially abroad (particularly the U.S., Japan, Germany and Norway). Bjørn Wiinblad's contemporaries were not exactly inclined to acknowledge his way to work, so his position as an artist has been a bit special. Globally, Bjørn Wiinblad is one of the very best selling Danish artists. He is (among other museums) represented at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
