A beautifully decorated musician playing the harp creates the cover image for this rare Wiinblad exhibition poster.
I have seen another version of this poster (with a different instrument) which is a Danish exhibition poster. This is why I believe this poster was made to advertise an exhibition called "Wiinblads Vidunderlige Verden" - The Wonderful World of Wiinblad. The exhibition was set up in 1974 in Aarhus (Denmark) in the former Aarhus Kunstmuseum, now called ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum.
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. This artwork is differently true to his special line - please pay close attention to all the little details in the background.
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, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and in many other museums all over the world.
