You are looking at an advertisement for The Elsinore Theater!

The theater is based in Elsinore, Denmark - a city that also boasts the UNESCO site of Kronborg Castle - which also creates the scenery for Shakespeare's Hamlet.

On the poster are two white circles - one which carry the name of the theater society but the lower circle is left blank - maybe for displaying the different show the theater is performing throughout the year? The green and black figures on the on poster may have been based on "the classical" inspiration from the ancient Greek theater with the famous sad and happy masks.

The Elsinore Theater (Helsingør Teater) is a theater society, which annually presents more than 100 cultural experiences for children and adults in Elsinore and the surrounding area.

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.

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.
