Commissioned by the advertising department of SBB (Swiss Federal Railways), this poster shows one of the most beautiful views along this journey, featuring the Château de Chillon, Lake Geneva and the Dents-du-Midi in the background. By opposing the cold winter tones of the mountains and the warm spring tones of the lakeshore, Cardinaux suggests that the route can be taken in any season.
A 1949 "before the letter" proof in large Swiss size by Emil Cardinaux for the Simplon Electric Line connecting Lausanne to Brig.
