161: Saint-Gothard / Ligne Electrique. 1935
Artist: OTTO BAUMBERGER (1889-1961) Size: 25 1/2 x 40 1/4 in./64.6 x 102.2 cm Wolfsberg, Zürich Taking its name from the mountain range running through it, Saint-Gothard’s importance lies in its main road, which goes through the range, connecting Northern and Southern Switzerland. Here, Baumberger points to another of its advantages -- one of the world’s first electrified railways -- which he quite masterfully blends with the natural beauty of the area. This is the French-language version of the poster.
