Palle Wennerwald's (1898-1972) poster for the Zoo in Copenhagen is a typical example of the influence of the German poster artist Ludwig Hohlwein's posters for the zoo in Munich, where the garden animals are portrayed on a solid colour background. 
Palle Wennerwald's portrayal of the two pink flamingos shows the exotic birds in a beautiful pose of harmonic balance a characteristic example of how simple graphic means can have great effect.
The zoo in Copenhagen has a special tradition for posters. The garden was founded in 1859, and the oldest preserved poster in the Zoological Gardens collection dates from 1874. 
However, only around 1900 began to use posters of today's prominent poster artists as a powerful, visual means of communication to draw attention to the new animals and attractions of the harbor. .
