This original vintage poster promotes the Exhibition of Ecclesiastical Textile Art in Sweden spanning eight centuries at Liljevalchs Art Gallery in Stockholm, from January 5 to 27, 1929. The exhibition was organized by the Statens Historiska Museum.

The poster depicts a saint standing on a dragon with a spear aligns with the iconic imagery of Saint George and the Dragon, a popular subject in Christian hagiography and art. Saint George, often depicted as a knight, is renowned for slaying a dragon, symbolizing the triumph of good over evil.

Liljevalchs Konsthall, located on Djurgården in Stockholm, was constructed in 1916 with funds from the estate of industrialist Carl Fredrik Liljevalch (1837–1909). Designed by architect Carl Bergsten, it was Sweden's first independent permanent gallery for contemporary art, marking a significant milestone in the city's cultural landscape.

The poster is in good condition, with some signs of age wear such as marginal tears. It serves as a historical artifact, offering a glimpse into Sweden's rich ecclesiastical textile art heritage and the cultural significance of Liljevalchs Konsthall during the exhibition in 1929.

This is an Authentic Original Vintage Poster from its time. It's not a new reproduction.
