Olympic Games Berlin 1936 Wurbel


Original vintage Summer Olympic Games poster for the 1936 Olympic Games held in Berlin from 1-16 August published by the German Railways Head Office for Tourist Traffic and the Propaganda Committee for the Olympic Games. Stunning classical influenced design by Franz Wurbel (b. 1896) featuring an iconic image of a sports man in gold wearing a green laurel leaf headpiece below the five Olympic rings dominated by the triumphant Brandenburg Gate Quadriga (the four horses leading an ancient chariot sculpted by Johann Gottfried Schadow; 1764-1850) in the foreground with the stylised text below. The German Chancellor Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) viewed the Berlin Games as an opportunity to promote his Nazi ideals; as part of the opening ceremony, the first torch run was held from ancient Olympia to the host city and these were the first Olympics to be televised. Franz Wurbel and Ludwig Hohlwein (1874-1949) were commissioned to design dynamic posters for this international sport event. Acceptable condition, fading, restored creasing, restored paper losses, restored tears, staining, backed on linen.
