Palace Hotel/St. Moritz in Switzerland, 1920, Wolfsberg, Zurich, printer, color lithographic poster, 50-3/8 x 35-3/4 in.; metal frame, 51-3/4 x 37-1/4 in.


The Palace Hotel in St. Moritz was a renowned lakeside resort for the very fashionable. Built in 1896 as a luxury hotel, it featured a large number of suites and a stately slanted-roof tower. Its architecture takes a cue from the style of the Alpine towns around it, and would have been appealing to the tourists there in the winter months. This poster reflects guests freely lounging, warmed by blankets and furs, next to the skating rink.
