‘Cachats Majestic, Chamonix Mont Blanc’, 1910
Price Code: £££££
Candido Aragonese de Faria (1849-1911)
A strikingly evocative, early original poster for Cachat’s Majestic Hotel.
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.
Conservation linen mounted, framed and glazed.
Dimensions: 51 x 66 inches (129 x 167 cm)
