This is one of a series of attractive posters created in the mid 1950's by Otto Neilsen for Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS). In this poster we see a pair of Swedish white storks, with a view of more in the background. They are one of the many attractions to be found outdoors in Scandinavia.
The artwork was commissioned by Scandinavian Airline System (S.A.S.), which is known today as Scandinavian Airlines. Nielsen created many beautiful posters for SAS from 1954 to 1976. These posters showcase Nielsen's loose oil painting technique and feature the people and animal life from destinations across the globe.
Otto Nielsen (1916-2000) was an accomplished painter who dedicated much of his career to studying the people and animals of different regions. He illustrated many travel books outside his career at SAS. Nielsen created posters as well as calendars and other promotional material for SAS for nearly 50 years.
