One of Wiinblad wonderful stage play posters featuring a noble person being shaved on an elephant! How cool is that?
The stage play "The Barber of Baghdad" (Der Barbier von Bagdad) is actually German comic opera written in 1858 is based on one of the stories from "One Thousand and One Nights". I believe it is the barber himself who (working with a costumer) we can see 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.
