This poster, for the 1964 Eidg. Turnfest in Zurich and the 64th turnfest in history, features a painterly and expressionist style. The image which is set in a pink-toned background features a man on the right-hand side of the poster holding flowers and an award.

The Eidg Turnfest (ETF) short for the Eidgenossiesche Turnfest (Federal Gymnastics Festival) is the largest Gymnastics event in Switzerland. The first ever turnfest took place in Aarau in 1832. The event is still in operation today. As of June 2019, Turnfest has hosted around 69,000 gymnasts and 200,000 spectators.

Hans Falk (1918 - 2002) was a Swiss painter, poster artist and graphic designer. Between 1943 and 1964, Falk designed a total of 58 posters, 28 of which were named the "Best Poster" by the Swiss Department of Home Affairs. After moving to England in 1958, Falk decided to spend more time on his career as a fine artist and began creating abstract expressionist paintings. In 1961, Falk received the Award for Excellence at the Society of Illustrators exhibition in New York for his Marcel Mareau bibliophile series.

  • 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.
