1972 Munich Olympic Games - David Hockney Original Vintage Poster

About the Item

Celebrated British artist David Hockney was one of 29 artists commissioned to produce posters for the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. In the run-up to the 1972 Games, the Organising Committee decided to commission a series of Artist Posters to "represent the intertwining of sports and art worldwide". The Games were the second to be held in Germany after the 1936 games in Berlin which were held under the Nazi regime. The tragedy of the Munich Massacre overshadowed the sporting events of the Olympics. This iconic poster features distinctive Hockney style of a diver about to Crash into the POOL of water and has stunning vibrant colour. The piece is on thick art stock paper and looks perfect framed on any wall.
