Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $1,251.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Rare color 24.75 x 39.5 English variant of the official poster designed by Franz Wurbel for the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics. The poster portrays a golden classical athlete wearing a laurel crown, with the Brandenberg Gate in the foreground and Olympic rings at the top. The text reads: "Germany, Berlin 1936, 1st-16th August, Olympic Games," with smaller text reading, "Information and handbooks from all tourist and travel agencies." Matted and framed to an overall size of 33 x 48.25. In very good condition, with paper loss to upper portion, and scattered tears and scuffing; with some wear and scratches to frame; in spite of its flaws, the poster still makes for a striking and powerful showcase. Sponsored by German railways, these posters were published in nineteen different languages.
