Poster No. 2870

Per l‘ordine e la collaborazione nei trasporti
(Swiss Federal Railways - rapidly and safely for all transportation)

Gauchat, Pierre, 1946

In this 1946 colour lithograph the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) tried, for the second time, to regulate the competencies of the various means of transport on a national level. In 1935 the Swiss people had voted against restricting competition.

Pierre Gauchat was a realist who wanted advertising messages to make an immediate impression on the viewer and be directly understandable. He liked to make his posters very simple, neat and objective. This 1946 poster is an interesting piece that exemplifies Gauchat’s high-level work.
