Step into the world of Swiss master poster designer Martin Peikert with this exceptional and exceedingly rare vintage advertising poster. Created in 1956, it captures the essence of the Montreux-Bernese-Oberland railways and showcases Switzerland as an unparalleled ski destination.
Embark on a scenic journey as the "Montreux-Bernese-Oberland" railway takes you from the picturesque town of Montreux, through the enchanting Golden Pass, to the breathtaking Bernese Oberland. Traverse the magnificent landscapes, including Gstaad, Interlaken, and the iconic Jungfrau, immersing yourself in the beauty of Switzerland's alpine wonderland.
The poster itself is a visual masterpiece. It features a captivating image of a woman reclining on the rooftop of a charming shed, basking in the warm embrace of the sun. The presence of skis suggests her thrilling adventures on the slopes, while the backdrop showcases the majestic alpine peaks, creating a sense of awe and wanderlust. A passing MOB train adds a touch of dynamism to the composition, further emphasizing the ease of travel and exploration.
Preserved in great condition, this vintage advertising poster is a testament to the timeless appeal of Peikert's artistry. A minor repair at the top margin and a small water stain at the upper left are insignificantly modest blemishes on this otherwise impeccable piece. Professionally mounted on linen, it is ready to be displayed and admired.
