Unveiling an exceptional gem of ski history, we present an original and exceptionally rare vintage ski poster from Norway, dating back to 1933. Commissioned by The Norwegian State Railways to promote the allure of Norway as a winter tourism destination, this captivating artwork is a true masterpiece.
Erling Nielsen, the brilliant artist behind this design, skillfully captured the spirit of the era. At the center of the poster stands a vibrant young woman, adorned in a fashionable red ensemble of the time, gracefully gliding through pristine powder snow on her skis. The scene comes alive with two additional skiers following behind, evoking a sense of exhilarating movement and adventure.
Beyond its artistic brilliance, the poster's scarcity further elevates its appeal. With limited records of sales, this ski poster has become a highly sought-after collector's item. Its German text version adds to its uniqueness, attracting enthusiasts and art lovers alike.
Well-preserved with only light foxing, this poster remains in very good condition, allowing viewers to admire its timeless beauty as though stepping back into the enchanting 1930s. Whether showcased in a private collection or in a dedicated ski-themed space, this extraordinary piece will captivate and transport you to the golden age of skiing, celebrating Norway's rich history of winter tourism.
