Breathtaking and restful image of a midcentury countryside landscape in Denmark.

The poster was made to encourage people to visit Jutland (Jylland) in Denmark in the late 1940s. This image is defiantly inspired by the Golden Age of Danish Painting from 1800 to around 1850 where painters highlighted the countryside romanticism painting landscapes with high skies, historical reflects from the Danish past and the farmers (those who where close to God). If you look closer you see some ancient tumuli or tombs (on the hill in the background).

This great poster was designed by the legendary Danish poster artist Aage Sikker Hansen (1897-1955). Sikker Hansen created some of the most iconic posters in Danish poster history like the Cirkel Coffee Posters. His posters where often portraits or people often using only pencil and charcoal which makes his images quite detail rich with many textures and shades. This poster is definitely true to his legacy.
