About the Item

Original signed poster lithograph, 1983. Edition of 150 signed and numbered impressions on Arches paper. Art and Sport portfolio: The Yugoslav Olympic Committee of the Winter Olympic Games Sarajevo 1984 wished to give a certain cultural-artistic accent to this world festivity. The admire of the Olympic idea, those who have a liking for the Olympic winter sports and the art connected with them will be, in agreement with the art publisher Visconti Art Lazo Vujić, honored by creations contributed by world known prominent artist. A portfolio containing sixteen original prints, handsigned and numbered by the artists, is published in a limited edition of 200 originals by each artist. Names like Dorazio, Folon, Greco, Helnwein, Hodgkin, Hwang, Kolar, Moore, Paladino, Pistoletto, Rosenquist, Santomaso, Stupica, Twombly and Warhol guarantee the high quality of the artistic idea and its realization. The size of the original print is 85 x 62 cm. The edition of the original graphic portfolio will be accompanied by limited editions of art posters of the same size, not numbered, but each of them carrying an impression of the inscription “Olympic Games Sarajevo 1984” and its logotype. The themes proposed by the artists are either winter sports, the Olympic idea or the town of Sarajevo. All the artists remain faithful to their own specific expression, using the formal elements of the language developed through the years of their creative presence in world’s art. So every print included in the portfolio is at the same time a particular contribution to the continuity of their artistic orientation, the theme being an additional iconographic impulse to their visual research. The symbiosis of the Olympic idea and art is certainly an interesting creative proposal that will fascinate art-collectors and sport-lovers as well. David Hockney is an English painter, draftsman, printmaker, stage designer, and photographer. As the one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century he contributed to the pop art movement. We can see many subjects in his art like landscapes, still lives, portraits, architecture with swimming pools, his dog, as well as stage designs for the Royal Court Theatre, Glyndebourne, and the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. There’s so much dynamism and excitement in this official poster and Hockney’s ‘joiner’ photomontage perfectly captures the sense of a skater’s movements, especially mid-twirl.
