This great and atmospheric poster displays no less than king of the fairies - Oberon!
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is a comedy play by Shakespeare and Oberon and his wife "Titania" (who happens to be the queen of the fairies) are having a dispute. They are fighting over a changeling child whom Oberon wants to raise as his henchman. Titania wants to keep the child because he is the child of Titania's mortal follower who died, and she wants to raise the child for her follower. Because Oberon and Titania are powerful fairies, their arguments affect the weather.
The rest of the story is up for you to read or watch..
The poster advertises a Wiinblad exhibition in Düsseldorf (Germany) with theatre works from 1947-1986. Wiinblad designed several costumes, dresses, stage curtains etc. in his long career. Actually, Wiinblad designed not only the stage décor but also the costumes when A Midsummer Night’s Dream was set up in Karlsruhe, Germany in 1982.
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.
