Ski / Sports
This original vintage travel poster designed by Gustav Jahn was issued to promote winter sports in Murau, a town located in the beautiful region of Styria, Austria. The poster features a stunning skiing scene of the time, depicted by artist Gustav Jahn (1879-1919).
Murau is accessible by the Mur valley railway, which was opened in 1894 and remains a popular tourist attraction to this day.
Gustav Jahn was an accomplished artist and athlete, known not only for his beautiful paintings but also for his prowess as a mountaineer, climber, ski jumper, and award-winning skier. Rarely does an artist's reality of life coincide so much with the fictional world of the pictures he has created as it does with Gustav Jahn.
The poster is printed on high-quality paper and is in excellent condition despite minor signs of age.
