Lac d’Annecy (Lake Annecy in English) is a bucolic area of the French Alps, near the Swiss border. For centuries it has been prized for its dramatic beauty, but surged in popularity in the early 1900s when the expansion of trains made it more accessible. This poster promotes exactly that; hop aboard the Paris - Lyon- Mediterranee (P.L.M.) train and several hours later, a boat will meet you at the Lac d’Annecy station for transport to the resort towns and thermal baths that line the Lake. The beauty of the Lake is on full display in this poster, with a dramatic sunset beginning to dip behind the peaks of the Alps. Seagulls graze the water as the boat comes to pick us up for our vacation.

Hugo d’Alesi (1849-1906) created this stunning poster. Born in Romania, d’Alesi was one of the first true poster artists and he worked almost exclusively for the P.L.M. train company. He printed his posters in an elaborate fashion that often incorporated more than 15 colors, which gave them a rich, watercolor effect. His hundreds of poster designs were well-loved by all of France, including some famous artists. Paul Cezanne once said, "I should like to do decorative landscapes like Hugo d'Alesi, yes, with my small sensibility".

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
