Description


Limited edition portfolio of 15 color lithographs created for the Los Angeles 1984 Summer Olympics by several notable American artists, published by the Knapp Communications Corporation in 1982, one of 750 editions issued. Each vividly imagined lithograph measures 24 x 36 and is signed in pencil or ink by the respective artist, which includes: Carlos Almaraz, John Baldessari, Jennifer Bartlett, Lynda Benglis, Billy Al Bengston, Jonathon Borofsky, Richard Diebenkorn, Sam Francis, April Greiman and Jayme Odgers, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Martin Puryear, Robert Rauschenberg, Raymond Saunders, and Garry Winogrand.

The portfolio features an informational cover sheet with a message from Robert L. Smith, the director of the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art, in part: “The posters commissioned for the 1984 Olympics contain an enlightened selection of the best American artists with special emphasis on those who work in Southern California. Recognizing the emergence of Los Angeles as an international art center, several young ‘emerging’ artists have been included to illustrate our diversity, depth and vitality.” The posters are housed in their original clothbound 25.5 x 37.75 x 1.5 clamshell case, with the cover featuring the LA Olympics logo and marked in silver text: “Games of the XXIII Olympiad, Los Angeles 1984.” In overall fine condition. Accompanied by certificates of authenticity for each poster from the Knapp Communications Corporation, stating that they were created “to commemorate the XXIIIrd Olympiad in Los Angeles, California, July 28 through August 12, 1984.”
