Mountaineering and winter sports became in vogue at the end of the 18th Century, right around the time that Chamonix was founded as a resort town. Cachat's Majestic was the premier resort of Chamonix, and was founded in 1816. Here we can see how a family can enjoy all the winter sports in the backyard of the Majestic. This is a rare poster.

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.

Candido Aragonese de Faria (1849 - 1911) was a Brazilian artist who emigrated to Paris in 1882. His early career in Brazil consisted of mostly political caricatures and other illustrations for periodicals. This work continued in France, but also diversified to include posters such as this one, as well as book illustrations and music sheet pages.

  • 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.
