This vintage original official poster was created by the artist Julio Kilenyi for the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. This poster utilizes the image of a sculpture of an Olympic athlete Kilenyi created for the event. A larger format of this poster was also issued that featured the Olympic rings at the bottom but on this less commonly seen variant the rings are replaced with text explaining how to obtain an official program and form for ordering tickets.
This poster has been professionally backed to linen with some expert repair and touch up as needed including mitigation to several lateral creases and repair to some tears on the edges. The lower right hand corner indicates “Litho In U.S.A. By Union Litho Co., Inc., L.A.” and the lower left hand corner indicates “Copyright 1931 By Xth Olympiad Committee Of The Games Of Los Angeles U.S.A. 1932 Ltd”. This rare and beautiful poster retains nice color and would be a great addition to any collection of Olympic memorabilia or sporting posters.
