A great exhibition poster with surreal art!

This poster features artwork by the Danish painter, graphic designer and object artist, Wilhelm Freddie (1909-1995). Like the father of the psychoanalysis Wilhelm Freddie was occupied by the soul before reason as well as the lust and the flesh of the human.

Freddie was the only Danish artist who experienced being reported to the police for having produced "obscene works of art". He was given a staple punishment for its "pornographic excesses" in 1937. At a retrial in 1963 he was acquitted and the works were delivered back under great public sensation.

The title of Freddie's painting (on the poster) can be translated into: "Psycho photographic phenomenon: The fallen of the World War" and was made in 1936.

Wilhelm Freddie was know to be a surreal loner as he stood out from other Surrealist artists in Denmark. Despite these facts he achieved great public recognition, prizes, honors and medals.
