The art of skiing : vintage posters from the golden age of winter sport

Jenny de Gex

Immigrant Scandinavian gold miners chasing the Gold Rush in the middle of the nineteenth century introduced skiing to the United States. By the turn of the twentieth century, skiing had emerged from its utilitarian origins to become a fashionable sport in both Europe and North America, and a wave of new, stylish resorts emerged. By the 1930s, skiing was by far the most popular winter pastime for the rich and famous - combining adventure, fashion and exclusivity. The graphic art of the posters advertising this burgeoning sport have become collectors' items. The Art of Skiing is a beautiful collection of the finest examples of poster art. Organised by country and resort, it uses posters from the Beekley Collection - the largest private collection of ski art in the world - to reflect the changing trends in skiing fashion and technique, and investigates the most popular resorts, their establishment and development.
