A very stylish poster featuring a 1929 architect sketch by Arne Jacobsen.

This poster was made to promote an exhibition called "Absolute Modern". The exhibition was set up in Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.

The drawing on the poster is called "The Future House" and was made for a contest by Arne Jacobsen. Jacobsen won the contest which marked his breakthrough as architect.

Arne Jacobsen (1902-197) was a Danish architect and designer who helped introduce modernism in Denmark. He has an international reputation and is one of Denmark's most famous designers.

Louisiana (Danish Museum of Modern Art) is located in Humlebæk north of Copenhagen, Denmark. The museum was opened its doors in 1958 and with its approximately 600,000 annual visitors, is one of Denmark's most visited museums and among the ten most visited tourist attractions. Louisiana is a collection of contemporary art, but also an interaction between art, architecture and landscape.

Louisiana got his name from court master Alexander Brun, who built a villa on the site in 1855. The villa's name is probably inspired by the three women he married - all three were named Louise. The founder of Louisiana chose to keep the name from the country house he subsequently transformed into a museum. The villa is now a part of this magnificent museum.
