Description

Tug Wilson's scarce original color 12 x 8 mini poster issued for the Antwerp 1920 Olympics. Designed by Martha van Kuyck and Walter von der Ven, this Art Nouveau poster celebrates the games with the flags of the competing nations, the coat of arms of Antwerp, and a classical Greek nude discus thrower, all set atop an overhead view of the city and its most famous landmark, the Tower of Notre Dame. Bold text reads: “VIIe Olympiade, Anvers 1920 Antwerpen, Aout-Septembre, Augustus-September.” Published by the La Lithographie Artistique of Bruges. In very good and fragile condition, with multiple tears, and some loss, to the edges.

From the Tug Wilson Estate.
