Ski Art

Σύνοψη του βιβλίου "Ski Art"

From the time that villages such as Davos, Gstaad, Klosters and Sun Valley established themselves as winter sports destinations towards the beginning of the 20th century, they began to advertise their attractions using the same sort of posters that had previously made railway journeys and ocean cruises so popular with the emerging breed of affluent holidaymakers. Ski Art brings together the finest examples of these posters in a vibrant gallery, featuring distinct styles from the wooden skis, leather boots and tweeds of the earliest art deco through the colourful kitsch of the 1950s to Eastern Bloc socialist realism and mind-boggling psychedelia of the 1960s and 70s. The top artists of each era reflected the energetic glamour of winter sports and the brightness of sun on snow. Presented at a size that does justice to these large and highly collectible works of art, with rare surviving original prints carrying jaw-dropping price tags, Ski Art makes an irresistible gift.
