Gay Spot of Europe - Vintage Travel Poster Denmark

The Original Colour Lithograph was designed by Hans Bendix in 1947 and published for the Danish Allied Committee. This wonderful Poster illustrates happy young people riding their bicycles in Copenhagen.

The bicycle epitomises Denmark and is the symbol of its national identity. A series of tourism posters were produced specifically targeting British tourists during the late 1940s. The British, like the Danes were hooked on cycling and with World War II over, the Danes were hoping to encourage British tourists to consider Denmark as a holiday destination.

He created illustrations for Social-Demokraten during the 1920s to the 1950s and is best remembered for his tourism and political posters. His characteristic light and suggestive style often featuring elegant young women with long legs revealing his passion for French culture.
