This colorful Swiss ski poster was designed by Eric de Coulon to promote the car-free resort village of Brunwald in the Glarus canton in Switzerland. Two carefree skiers enjoy a ride on the Gumen Sesselbahn, according to some references the oldest ski chairlift in Switzerland, with the spectacular Swiss Alps providing the background scenery. The lower margin indicates “Ringier & Co., A.G., Zofingen”. This poster isn’t dated but various references cite publication dates of 1937 and 1945.
This hard to find poster has been professionally linen backed and some expert repair to a couple small tears on the edges and a bit of creasing to the lower right hand corner. A couple small spots near the bottom edge have been mitigated and the poster displays beautifully with rich color. Overall condition is very good.
