A very loving poster displaying a person in need of care and one who cares.
The poster was commissioned by the Danish "Scleroseforeningen" (Danish Multiple Sclerosis Society) possibly as a poster to raise money to battle sclerosis. The poster says "Din Hjælp - Vor Hjælp" (Your Help - Our Help) which probably means "help us to help others".
There is no year on the poster but I am quite sure it was made in the 1980s as I got the poster along with other Wiinblad posters from that decade.
The image is very true to Wiinblad's work with the soft curves, friendly faces and 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.
