About the poster: Anything signed Antoni (for the Danish artist Ib Antoni 1929-1973) never stays in the gallery very long because of how quickly they sell! This poster shows a young boy dressed in traditionally Danish fisherman's garb, holding a fresh catch in one hand and the Danish flag in the other. They are beautiful, simple and perfect for a children's room!

About the artist Ib Antoni (1929-1973) was a well known set cartoonist, designer and poster artist. Not only in Denmark but also abroad, where he illustrated the renown Times and Life Magazine in the USA. Ib Antoni created approximately 300 posters in the twenty years of his ​ career. He was commissioned by a wide range of clients such as FDB, Politiken, Carlsberg, Dyrup, Volvo, Danish Agriculture, Foreign Affairs, UNICEF and others.
