Print: Offset print
Dimensions: 15.6 x 39.2 in (39.5 x 99.5 cm)
Condition: Very good condition - very light signs of handling - please see pictures.
Please note: I know of one other version of this poster which was made in 1988. On the 1988 version some of the products in the shopping basket has been changed or replaced and it also has the title "Generale Biscuit France" label in the bottom of the poster.
Here is one of the rarer Wiinblad posters which is one of the most charming advertisement I have seen.
The poster is obviously an advertisement for the French biscuits manufacturer LU (Lefèvre-Utile). You can see a few of LU's products in the shopping basket on the poster.
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.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
