ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM...

'Cachats Majestic' (2), 1910

A pair of strikingly evocative, early original posters for Cachat’s Majestic Hotel by Candido Aragonesede Faria (1849-1911). Two intrepid Englishmen discovered France’s climbing capital of Chamonix, and the ascent of Mont Blanc in the late 18th century ushered in the age of mountaineering. Luxury hotels followed, the first in 1816, but the jewel in the crown was the splendidly noteworthy Majestic in the heart of the town, claiming unrivalled views of the summit of Mont Blanc Massif and the glacial valley.
