Let It Snow: Skiing and Winter Sports Poster Exhibition

ps0524_1_m   ps0566_1_m   ps0362_1_m   ps0356_1_m

We are holding an exhibition of original antique and vintage skiing and winter sport posters at our gallery from 1 November to 10 December.

These dynamic, glamorous and eye-catching posters were originally produced to entice holiday-makers and thrill-seekers to alpine resorts. Packed with decorative appeal and nostalgia for the Golden Age of travel, they are ideal for decorating chalets and provide a stunning reminder back home of a memorable ski trip.

Many of the early- to mid-century skiing and winter sports posters feature strong images that were designed by notable artists of the time and the rarity of those that have survived makes them highly collectible and a good investment.
