Every year Tivoli invites a Danish artist design the poster art for the coming season. The art for the poster of 1981 was created by Bjørn Wiinblad (1918 - 2006) who also is well known for his ceramics and paintings. On the image you can see a colorful dressed joker/jester holding a decorated plate with a miniature sized Tivoli Park on top.

Tivoli is one of the world most famous amusement parks. The park is the second oldest amusement park in the world and is based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

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 (among other museums) represented at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Note: this is the smaller version of the normal sized poster which is 24.4 x 33.5 in/62 x 85 cm. This small version was retrieved directly from Tivoli and it is very possible that this poster was not meant for sale to the public.
