Original Vintage Poster Olympic Games in Munich 1972 Artist Pierre Soulages



This is an original lithographic poster made for the Munich Olympics in 1972. It is a genuine 1970s issue and not a later reproduction of modern copy. It is sold as a genuine poster - and full refunds would be given if you were not satisfied with its original status. The posters for the Munich Olympics formed a set of 24 stunning posters by popular artists (including this one). They were all to have a linked visual identity and the artists were told to avoid the use of any red and black on them (which were traditionally associated with Nazi Germany). The commission for the series was intended to "represent the intertwining of sports and art worldwide. This eye-catching design was made by Pierre Soulages. The issue is Edition Olympia 1972 GmbH 1970; it was printed in Germany - as annotated beneath the logo in the bottom left-hand corner. Pierre Soulages (born 1919) is a French painter, engraver, and sculptor - he could perhaps be considered one of the world's greatest living artists. His work is always down in black and white - and he described his works which are painted in monochrome as "outrenoir". The Louvre held a centenary exhibition to celebrate his 100th birthday in 2019. This print is in good condition - with little evidence of any fading etc - it has protected behind glass and the image is nice and fresh - a great image for a modern contemporary interior. Dimensions: 101 x 64 cm. It is sold framed and would be posted carefully
