Lugano - Southern Switzerland, 1945 ca.
Born in 1890 and strongly influenced by Matisse and other Fauvist artists, Danielle Buzzi was one of the most unique and skilled poster artists from the Italian-speaking southern part of Switzerland.
This charming view highlights the traditional ferry boats of Gandria, a historic (and auto-free) village on the northeast side of Lugano. In the distance can be seen Lugano's famous peak of Monte San Salvatore.
This poster was so successful it was produced in both the 28" x 40" travel format and the oversize Swiss "World Format" of 35" x 50".
