Wiinblad died shortly before midnight Thursday, said Goy Badse, his secretary of 45 years.

He had his first major exhibition in 1954, and some of his works were included in an exhibition of Scandinavian art at the Brown Stone Gallery in New York, the AP reports.

Wiinblad later displayed his work in dozens of art galleries and museums in countries across the world, including Japan, Australia and Canada.

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Danish Museum of Art & Design in Copenhagen featured his work in separate exhibitions.
