Both can accomplish this. You can find examples of configuring Nginx as a reverse proxy under "Proxying Examples" on this page. You can also see a simple example for static content in my answer here and you might also want to consider a cookieless domain for this which can you read more about in this answer.

For more information how to make the choice between Apache and Nginx see this serverfault post.
