A couple stands at the precipice of a mountain peak, looking out at the French Alps before them. While it must have been a daring feat to climb to this point, the soft watercolor technique and calm color palette instead project a feeling of serenity. The couple seem to be appreciating the quiet beauty of this stunning view.

Chamonix is a town located in the Mont Blanc region of the French Alps. Mont Blanc itself is the largest mountain in the Alps. It defines the border between Italy and France, and the mountain is often claimed as belonging to both countries and open to debate.

The artist of this poster is Samivel (1907-1992). Born Paul Gayet-Tancrede in Paris, Samivel was a prolific and accomplished watercolorist, author, poet, and filmmaker. He loved the region of Mont Blanc, and almost all of his paintings feature the French Alps, mountaineering, or a combination of the two.

  • 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.
