About this poster
Grand Prix of Switzerland is the name of a circuit race held by the Automobile Club of Switzerland. The first race was held in the 1934 Grand Prix season on the Bremgarten circuit, and the Swiss Grand Prix was part of the racing series until the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939. Renowned poster designers such as Eric Coulon, Karl Bickel, Kaspar Ernst Graf and Hans Thöni were commissioned to design posters for the automobile races. The race posters, which are sought after by collectors, are considered rare masterpieces of the 1930s.
