Vtg 1950s Lausanne Switzerland Swiss Travel Poster Percy Drake Brookshaw NO RES!

This listing is for a wonderful Swiss Travel Poster. The poster comes from the archives of a long time collector who lived in Switzerland for many years. This is an original poster, not a reproduction. Based on our research, it was designed in the late 1950s by Percy Drake Brookshaw to promote the city of Lausanne (the second largest city on Lake Geneva). The poster is in excellent overall condition and measures about 25.5 x 39.25 inches. It has some very minor creasing and edge wear, and a small discoloration in the lower left corner. Please see the detailed photos below, and contact us with any questions before bidding. We have a low opening bid price, so don't miss your chance to win!


From the Stephen Ongpin website:
Percy Drake Brookshaw (1907-1993) was born in London and studied at the Central School of Arts and Crafts. A painter in oils and watercolours as well as a lithographer, he was encouraged by the poster and textile designer F. Gregory Brown to turn his hand to working as an illustrator, poster designer and graphic artist. Brookshaw designed advertising posters for London Transport and the Underground Group between 1928 and 1958, often depicting such annual sporting events as the Lawn Tennis Finals at Wimbledon, the cricket at Lords, football Cup Finals at Wembley1 and the Oxford and Cambridge University Boat Race on the river Thames. Brookshaw taught lithography at Goldsmith’s College School of Art in London in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, and was a member of the Art Workers Guild and the Senefelder Club. He also worked occasionally as an illustrator, notably providing illustrations for an edition of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped, published in 1925.
