New York’s Swann Auction Galleries will be offering a large collection of ski posters in their forthcoming Vintage poster sale on March 16th, including among others, Carl Moos, St. Moritz, 1924.
With estimates ranging from $12,000 (£9,700) to $18,000 (£14,600), specialist Nicholas Lowry says, “There are many fine early examples from the years prior to the First World War, with images from France, Germany and Switzerland. We have a powerful representation of the bigger and more famous Swiss resorts, such as St. Moritz, for which we have five separate images, including one of the most dramatic by Carl Moos.”
He adds, “There are also some exceptionally rare American examples, including three for which we could find no previous auction record. There is a wonderful assortment of strong art deco ski posters, as well as iconic works by the best artists of the time including Roger Broders, Erich Hermes, Ludwig Hohlwein, Franz Lenhart, Sascha Maurer, Mario Puppo and Dwight Shepler.”
