A wonderful original 1940s travel poster promoting the route from Elsinore (Helsingør) in eastern Denmark to Helsingborg in Sweden. Pictured on the left is Kronborg, an important Renaissance castle and stronghold of Denmark immortalized as Elsinore in William Shakespeare's play Hamlet. To the right is Kärnan, a medieval tower in Helsingborg in southern Sweden that was once considered the most important fortress in Denmark. Both structures were integral in securing control over the entranceway to the Danish-Swedish border.
The artist, John Erik Hugo Gehlin (1889-1953) was a Swedish painter, graphic artist, and sculptor.
In very good condition. Bright colors and impeccable design.
