Morgenthaler, Ernst, 1944

The famous Bernese painter Ernst Morgenthalter was working and living amongst the Swiss artists Hodler, Burri, Amiet or Wieland. His works reflect a subtle and careing approach and his themes always concentrate on motives of his own daily life. He once said that he could only draw and create what he had seen or lived himself.

This poster was created towards the end of WWII and promotes travelling by Swiss railways.
