About

Original vintage Summer Olympic Games poster for the 1936 Olympic Games held in Berlin from 1-16 August, published by the Reichsbahnzentrale fur den Deutschen Reiseverkehr (German Railways Head Office for Tourist Traffic) and the Propaganda Committee for the Olympic Games. Stunning classical influenced design by Franz Wurbel (b. 1897) featuring the image of man in gold wearing a green laurel leaf headpiece below the five Olympic rings dominated by the triumphant Brandenburg Gate Quadriga (the four horses leading an ancient chariot sculpted by Johann Gottfried Schadow; 1764-1850) in the foreground with the stylised text below in English - Germany Berlin 1936 1st-16th August Olympic Games Information and handbooks from all tourist and travel agencies. The German Chancellor Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) viewed the Berlin Games as an opportunity to promote his Nazi ideals and the party commissioned Franz Wurbel and Ludwig Hohlwein to design dynamic posters for this international sports event; as part of the opening ceremony, the first torch run was held from ancient Olympia to the host city and these were the first Olympics to be televised. Excellent condition.
