Vintage Ad For The National Ski Patrol System Giclee Print
A public service poster--that includes a small image of an actual rescue in progress in the background--is as iconoclastic as it is boldly promotional. Maurer used the sleek, Hollywood-inspired style of enhanced realism that came into vogue in the 1940s. He is best known for a series of posters that he created for the New Haven Railroad and other New England clients. This beautiful piece, part of an exclusive line of incredibly high quality commemorative edition Giclee prints, is printed on a thick, 100% acid free, imported heavy archival stock. The finest museum standard archival water-based organic inks and paints are used to produce a stunningly brilliant piece with a rich, non-glare matte finish. It is a wonderful reproduction of a vintage Swiss / Austrian travel / tourism advertising art poster for sking in Switzerland / Austria. This piece is new and in perfect condition. This looks wonderful framed in the home, office, restaurant, school or gym and is perfect for the skier or ski fan! This is a rare Giclee, and is unusual in that it is not mass produced. Other limited edition prints are produced by the hundreds or even thousands, while this piece is printed only one at a time, individually made by special order only. Very few have ever been printed.
The quick frame option comes ready to hang and framed as shown, with acrylic glass and a solid wood black frame, no mats.
