Jeux Olympiques. Stockholm 1912 [Olympic Games]

1911. Colour lithograph with letterpress banner, signed and dated in image upper left, 100.2 x 73.3cm. Repaired tears, old folds. Linen-backed.

Text in French continues “Le 29 Juin – 22 Juillet. A. Bortzells TR.A. B. Stockholm.” Letterpress banner reads “Chemin de fer du nord [French Northern Railway]. 3 services rapides journaliers de Paris a Stockholm.”

This poster was not distributed in some countries as it was seen as too “daring” due to the nudity of the athletes, which was in deference to the ancient Olympic games. Ref: Olympic Movement.
