Entrance to Storm P. Museet

The entrance to the Storm P. museum on Frederiksberg Runddel, Frederiksberg, Denmark (www.stormp-museet.dk/).

 

Robert Storm Petersen (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Storm_Petersen), was a Danish humourist, cartoonist and artist, who was many, many years ahead of his time.

 

Besides his cartoons and philosophical sentences, he's also know for thinking up crazy machines, and a commercial he did for the Tuborg brewery is know by most danes.

 

Can remember EVER laughing at a museum, but he also had a "dark" side, symbolised in quotes like this (said in a drawing of a Capitalist warmonger): kimbach.jaiku.com/presence/4568123

 

Storm P. is such an inspiration, and he deserves to be much better known outside the Danish borders.
