This bright vintage ski poster reads, "Go Skiing!" commanding the viewer to take to the slopes. It was published in Russia in the 1940s and designed by Maria Nesterowa, a well-known Russian poster artist who also created many travel posters in her career.
One of the first - if not the first - soviet ski poster after WW II, therefore very rare, by Maria Nesterowa-Berzina. She worked in a variety of poster genres. Her best-known works are the 1930s advertising posters she produced for Intourist. With this poster the United Committee for Physical Education and Sport, subordinated to the Council of Ministers of the USSR, appealed for getting on skis. The reason was the Soviet Championship in the village Uktus, located in the Ural close to Ekaterinenburg. The representative teams of the labour union, Dinamo, and of the army, Spartaka, were involved

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.
