Bjørn Wiinblad(20 September 1918 - 8 June 2006), was silver, bronze, textiles, and graphics. His work has been shown widely inEurope, in theUnited States of Americafirst in 1954 and 1968. He worked for Rosenthal for many years and his porcelain pieces are stunning.

He was attached to theUnited StatesEmbassy inParisin 1947 as a poster designer. Later his posters illustratedCopenhagen's famousTivoli Gardensand many other activities inDenmark, as well as the Olympic Games for the Handicapped atSeoul, theNew World Symphony Orchestraacademy inMiami, and theRoyal Danish Balletat theMetropolitan Opera House, all in 1988. His textile work was used for costumes for numerous ballets and stage presentations.

Characteristics of Wiinblad's work include whimsical round-faced people, dressed in vaguely 19th-century costume. They are often surrounded by natural elements: twining vines, floral wreaths, and fantastical trees. When Wiinblad employedcolor, he did so with great assurance. His colors are saturated and strong--sometimes almostpsychedelic--and are often supplemented withmetallicgold or silver.

Wiinblad illustrated the work of his fellowDane,Hans Christian Andersen, when he took on the task of providing the artwork for "The Swineherd," which won an award from theAmerican Library Association. Wiinblad's "swineherd" illustrations were turned into a short animated film in 1986.

Wiinblad was an important designer for His most popular Rosenthal dinnerware design, Romance (Romanze), was a typical Wiinblad design in terms of its incredible level of fine decorative detail. Starting in 1971, he also designed an annual commemorativeChristmasplate forRosenthal. Wiinblad also designed ceramic pieces forNymolle, aDanishpottery.

Museums the world over have Wiinblad's work in their collections. Among these are theVictoria and Albert MuseuminLondon; theMuseum of Modern ArtinNew York; andStockholm'sNational Museum. His large ceramics and tapestries have been used for hotel decorations inJapanand theUnited States; for example, he designed the large Scheherazade tapestry for theDallasWorld Trade Center.
