A very rare and beautiful advertisement made by Bjørn Wiinblad for the Danish Royal Theater.
The poster advertises The Danish Ballet Festival in 1987 with a ballet dancer performing in an fairy tale landscape which captures the setting in a magical way.
The poster is printed on heavy grade paper which seems to some sort of thick watercolor paper. Also note the color scheme in the right side of the poster - this is a sign on that this poster was made as a sample and was not intended to be sold to the public. I know of another version of this poster which has a different text in the bottom.
The craft of Wiinblad is often colorful, lush and full of humor. He was inspired by the sumptuous oriental style far from the Nordic minimalist 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.
