Wiinblad connaisseurs will instantly recognize that this artwork is quite unusual compared to his other works. The poster also has an unusual thoroughness to it.
This is also the first time I see a Wiinblad movie poster- the poster advertises the silent French movie "The Passion of Joan of Arc" (La Passion de Jeánne d'Arc) from 1928. The movie is directed by the Danish film director Carl Th. Dreyer and deals with the trial, sentencing and execution of Joan of Arc in 1431. It is quite a powerful movie and today the film remains a cornerstone of the silent movies.
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.
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.
There is little doubt that this is one of the rarer Wiinblad posters.
