Fontanarosa’s timeless alpine poster, first printed in 1948 & then re-issued in 1954, remains an effective and evocative image for any who have visited the winter alps. SNCF was more concerned with generating tourist traffic on the network rather than promoting any particular resort or ski area, so the poster is geographically generic, which adds to it’s wide appeal.
This 1948 poster has been laid on linen & is ready to frame. It is complete & free from loss. Some small age related creases exist but these are entirely consistent with a poster this age. Overall, it’s in good condition and one of SNCF’s best ski/alpine winter posters. It’s really nice.
