This is one of the cornerstones of Wiinblad's posters.

The legendary "Vanitas" poster displays a dressed-up lady accompanied by two pink birds. It appears she is quite satisfied with her looks - maybe it is because the Latin word "vanitas" means "vanity" - though it can also be "vain".

The poster is made as a serigraph (silk screen print) which means the colors looks very vibrant and the quality of the print is very high. It is a highly refined process that takes much longer than typical offset print. However, when the serigraph is finish you can touch the colors and textures on poster almost as if it was a painting.

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 represented at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

I also have other versions of the poster available - look in the "Wiinblad section".
