France Sports D'Hiver Boy is a c.1950 French ski poster by Philip Machatcheck. This winter sports poster was commissioned as part of France's initiative to encourage tourism in the aftermath of the Second World War. This period also coincides with new innovations in air and railway travel, which made it more affordable to the emerging middle class family.
