Poster No. 274

L’Été en Suisse
(Summer in Switzerland)

Cardinaux, Emil, 1921

Emil Cardinaux laid the foundations for modern Swiss poster art with his simple style influenced by Hodler and the impressionists. His travel posters convey his love of nature and the mountains. The soft watercolours of this poster from 1921 are particularly lovely and make for an effective advertisement for summer holidays in Switzerland.
