A Cross Word Problem at Murren's - Three Agitated Skiers

EDITORS COMMENTS
This vibrant and humorous caricature illustration, created by Norman Keene in 1925, captures the essence of a winter sports mishap in the picturesque Swiss Alps. The scene unfolds at Murren, a renowned ski resort, where three men in traditional skiing attire find themselves in an unexpected predicament. Their faces are etched with anger and frustration as they exclaim in unison, their words lost in the crisp mountain air. Keene, a prolific illustrator known for his topical illustrations and travel posters, masterfully captures the spirit of the 1920s with this witty depiction of a skiing accident. The men's exaggerated expressions and postures add to the comedic effect, while the intricate details of their clothing and equipment ground the illustration in reality. The title "A Cross Word Problem at Murren's" adds an intriguing layer to the image. The phrase "cross word" can be interpreted in multiple ways - as a reference to a cryptic puzzle or a description of the men's tangled ski bindings. Regardless of the intended meaning, the title further emphasizes the sense of confusion and frustration felt by the skiers. This illustration is a testament to Keene's artistic prowess and his ability to encapsulate the human condition in a single image. It transports us to a bygone era, inviting us to share in the laughter and camaraderie of these three unfortunate skiers. Norman Keene's "A Cross Word Problem at Murren's" is a delightful reminder of the joys and challenges of winter sports, as well as the enduring appeal of a well-crafted caricature. This 1925 masterpiece continues to captivate audiences with its timeless charm and wit.
