Ski posters to give your walls a lift

02 February 2004Written by ATG Reporter

POSTERS provide instant wall power to any interior, and carefully chosen they can prove a most effective (and cost-effective) device in any decorating scheme. Look out for two interesting poster auctions next month on either side of the Atlantic.

On February 5 Swann of New York hold a 360-lot sale of Vintage Posters, many of them on a skiing theme, then on the 26th Christie’s South Kensington hold a 420-lot sale of posters, all on the subject of skiing.

From the latter comes this lithographic poster for Gauloises by Jean Gueillet, printed by Klausfelder and measuring 4ft 21/2in x 2ft 111/2in (1.29m x 90cm). Its estimate is £300-500.
