  • This poster from 1955 was designed by Bernard Villemot (1911-1989) and commissioned by the French Tourism Department to promote skiing in the French Alps. Villemot has depicted the curving ski slope in a very sophisticated and clever way. With a few simple elements and colors, the artist evokes perfectly a ski slope. The yellow text and sun, and the red skiers become the focal point against a light blue background. This is the English text version, there is a French text version as well.
