Vtg Circa 1950 Swiss Travel Poster Bernese Oberland Albert Steiner Flowers Photo

This listing is for a rare Swiss Travel Poster. It is promoting the Bernese Oberland region in Switzerland, and features an Albert Steiner photograph of edelweiss flowers. Based on our research, it was printed circa 1950. This is an original poster, not a modern reproduction. It comes from the archives of a long time poster collector who lived in Switzerland for many years. The poster measures about 25 x 40 inches. It is in good condition with some moderate creasing and edge wear. There is a 1/2 inch tear on the left edge and a few very small tears on the top edge. There are tape marks in several corners. 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 add this poster to your collection!

Albert Steiner (1877–1965) was one of Switzerland's outstanding 20th-century photographers. His landscape photographs taken in the Engadine, where he lived and worked for 46 years, are unique on an international as well as a national level. They have had a major influence on an awareness of Switzerland as an unspoiled alpine country of surpassing beauty. Inspired by painters such as Giovanni Segantini and Ferdinand Hodler, Steiner took pictures that reveal a profound respect for and love of nature, as well as a tireless search for timeless beauty and metaphysical truth. His meticulously structured, light-saturated compositions are expressive witnesses of his experience of human insignificance in the face of the greatness and sublimity of the mountain world.

Breathtaking views, magnificent mountains, unspoilt nature, glistening lakes and genuine hospitality – the best of Switzerland! The Bern-Bernese Oberland region is well worth a visit at any time of year. Picturesque landscapes surrounded by countless mountain peaks, more than 800 lakes, world-class events and great experiences, pleasurable moments and feelings of happiness, living traditions and visible customs: the Bernese Oberland is one of Switzerland's most diverse regions.
