The thirsty man (Tuborg Beer/Øl). Vintage poster by Erik Henningsen (1855-1930)

Description:
The thirsty man
Description:
Erik Henningsen
Erik Henningsen (1855-1930) was a Danish painter and illustrator, graduated from the Academy of Art in 1873-77. His works are marked by humanistic ideals of creating a better society through public information and debate. Henningsen's posters and paintings will therefore often show the unemployed, women, children and older people - but also Copenhagener life's many facets.
The thirsty man
Erik Henningsen's best-known illustration is the poster Tuborg Beer (1900). The poster was originally number two in a competition organized on the occasion of Tuborg beer's 25-year anniversary. Number one was a poster made by the symbolist painter JF Willumsen. But when Tuborg then director Benny Dessau found that Henningsen's Tuborg Beer had a greater popular appeal, it was this one that went into production. It has since become a folk classic.
Size: 70 x 100 cm.
