• Hans Truöl - Original Photo Prints

    <p>Hans Truöl was born on 26th June 1920 in Augsburg, Germany. From a young age he was enthusiastic about photography &amp; made his passion a profession. As a photojournalist he specialized in the area of winter sports photography &amp; set new standards making him one of the most outstanding press &amp; celebrity photographers of his time. His photographic work from 1932 to 1981 was awarded with numerous prizes and acknowledgements around the world, notably in the U.S., China, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. He was famous in the ski world and his dearest ski friends included Toni Sailer, Karl Schranz, Hubert Strolz, Willy Bogner, and Rosi Mittermeier. His other well-known celebrity friends were “Ferry” Porsche, Carlo Abarth, Ingrid Bergmann, Aga Khan IV and the royal families of the Netherlands, Belgium and Jordan, just to name a few. In the early 50s, Hans Truöl used a Hasselblad camera; therefore, his photos were characterized by sharpness, definition &amp; contrast range. His stunning backlit shots created great sensation and continue to do so up to the present day. Another of his passions was the Porsche sports car. One of his most renowned and unique photos was without doubt, the “Porsche Jump”, which gained him international fame. Hans Truöl passed away on 26th April 1981 in Immenstadt, Germany, leaving an impressive legacy behind. Along that, a unique photographic documentation of the period from 1932 to 1981, which was probably the most exciting time in skiing when simple wooden boards became skis and glacier covered mountains, became playgrounds. <strong>WORLDWIDE SHIPPING</strong> - WE ALSO OFFER PRINTS ON BARITE, CANVAS ON A STRETCHER FRAME, 3 PANEL "SPLIT IMAGE" ON CANVAS.

  • Original Vintage Ski Posters & Prints

    <p>Antique Ski Shop offers some very rare and authentic Swiss ski and Alpine posters available on the market today. Throughout their history, posters have been a significant means of mass communication and Switzerland was the most prolific country for ski tourism posters in the 20th century. Attractive as the images are, ski posters were never meant to become collectible art. They were produced as marketing material designed to lure holidaymakers to the destinations they depicted. They were not intended to last, and the vast majority were torn down, pasted over, or just thrown away when the season changed as it was time to tout the summer resorts. Posters that have survived and are in good to excellent condition are scarce. Original ski posters have become increasingly sought after, not only because they look great decorating your home or chalet but many continue to escalate in value. Experts have estimated that in the last ten years, values have increased by several hundred percent. For example, many posters that were sold for CHF 4,000 – CHF 6,000 in the late 1990’s are now selling for CHF 12,000 or more. Not a bad investment indeed! Above all, all our original vintage posters are classified in the A – B+ range and are guaranteed for satisfaction and authenticity. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany each purchase. High quality prints are also available which are also satisfaction guaranteed or your money back! (If you are looking for a specific poster/resort, please use our search box feature above)</p>
