Vintage Aspen Ski Poster by Bill Alexander
This watercolor poster looks up at the famous Aspen mountain nicknamed “Ajax” from the West end of town.
BILL ALEXANDER was born, raised and educated in Colorado. He lived in Denver and maintained a second home in Georgetown, Colorado. His watercolors of skiing and winter scenes have a unique and distinctive quality. Skiers may be his most enthusiastic collectors, his works, in their words “…express the real atmosphere and feeling of skiing.”
His control of the media is apparent -the “wet-in-wet” technique is carried to the ultimate in his softly misty paintings and yet there is nothing timid about them.
He was an award winning painter, his works hang in many private collections.
