München 1972

The series of posters designed for the advertisement of the 1972 Munich Olympic games have an iconic status in design history. The employment of artists such as Josef Albers, David Hockney and the Allan Jones, to create imagery that endorsed individual sporting categories, was also successful in creating striking autonomous artworks. Inherent in the commission of international contemporary artists, is the artistic-cultural exchange synonymous with the spirit of the Olympiad.




The Munich posters currently in stock in the Sotheran's poster collection is currently located at our 2 Sackville Street shop, in the basement gallery. The series of twenty-nine posters were well received at the time, and are as popular today as they were in 1972, highlighting the enduring appeal of these works.
