Snow Skiingby Alex W. Diggelmann
1937 A sunny ski bunny greets us with a smile and a wave as she climbs the sun-infused slopes at a Swiss ski resort in Gstaad.A sunny ski bunny greets us with a smile and a wave as brilliant as the sun-infused slopes that she climbs courtesy of the toboggan-like tow in this stupendous Digglemann light and shadow masterpiece for the Swiss ski resort. Lying at the junction of four gently sloping valleys on the boundary between the Bernese and Vaud Aps, Gstaad is as pleasing to the traveler as much for its restful setting as for the social climate it generates. Diggelmann started out as an elementary school teacher, then studied art in Leipzig and Paris. He established himself in Zurich as a posterist specializing in travel and sports, and won awards for poster designs for the 1936 Berlin and 1948 London Olypmics.
