One quite extraordinary sketch displaying a beautiful Siamese dancer.
The poster was made by Bjørn Wiinblad as costume sketches for a play called "Around the world in 80 days" performed in 1968 at Aarhus Theatre in Denmark. The poster displays an elegant Siamese solo dancer - performed by a lady (translation of the handwritten text in Danish on the each poster saying "solodame").
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.
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.
