This vivid image was created in 1929 by Roger Broders for the French railway known as P.L.M. (Paris- Lyon-Mediterrane’e) . PLM was trying to encourage travel by winter sports enthusiasts to the mountain regions of France. This image was produced with text in other languages as a way of attracting a wide population of skiers to the regions. In this image we see the well-dressed skiers disembarking from their transport to begin their climb to the starting point of their skiing. The snowcapped mountains seem serene and most attractive in the background. The use of the Art Deco style by Broders is what makes his artwork so endearing to today’s aesthetic.

Roger Broders (1883-1953) was a French posterist and illustrator working in the early twentieth century. He is well known for his many travel posters, which feature scenic regions of France. He developed a simple design format that showcased the location with bold colors and minimal text. He often traveled to the locations he pictured via his sponsor, P.L.M. railways. Broders' relationship with P.L.M. began through a connection with his wife, which would prove fortuitous for the artist. Although his posters are well known and highly sought after, he produced less than 100 designs in his life which makes most of his works very rare.

  • 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.
