The Svenska Kennelklubben (Swedish Kennel Club) was founded in 1889. Still active today, their yearly Hunduställning (dog show) presents a wide variety of purebred canines competing for the coveted Best in Show. Bo Vilson was predominantly known as a prolific cartoonist, but he also painted and illustrated book covers, postcards, and designed a few posters. This elegant Art Deco inspired poster for the event in 1950 employs a rich color palette to highlight the sculpturesque hounds racing through the scene. The design is imbued with an aura of sophistication and grandeur. Vilson passed away in 1949 and this was likely his last poster work.
