This, the first poster for a modern Olympic Games, stands as one of the most beautiful images ever created in celebration of an Olympiad. Designed by a notable Swedish artist, Gustaf Hjortzberg, its detailed background of billowing flags evocative of an opening ceremony draws a striking contrast to the muscled athletes of the foreground. Notably, the Stockholm games were the first time that athletes from all five continents represented by the Olympic rings competed against each other. This poster conveys the spirit of international competition and unity of the Olympic Games.
In fine condition with lush color. Stunning!
