A rare Bjørn Wiinblad sketch print showing one of his earliest poster designs.
The poster displays an elegant ballerina and the sketch was probably used for costume design for a stage play. I am quite sure that the poster is not commercial which means that the poster probably comes directly from a printer's office. Also note the white bars in the top and the bottom which was intended to be removed.
If you are a Wiinblad connoisseur you will might notice Wiinblads delicate and gentle lines especially in the face and on the feet. However, his round and curvy style is stilling being developed.
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 represented at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
This is indeed a poster which is hard to find and I really hope the poster will find a nice home where people will appreciate the ballerina.
Disclaimer: the poster could also be from the 1940s.
