Taking you back to where it all began - the Games of the I Olympiad in Athens! Commemorate the realization of the vision of Baron Pierre de Coubertin, who just two years earlier, at age 31, announced to a skeptical public that he was determined to revive the ancient ritual of the quadrennial Olympic sporting festival. Since there was no "official poster" of the 1896 games, this beautiful print, published by the IOC at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, features a reprint of the cover art for the official report of the first games, which is a tremendous work of art in its own right. From the Goddess Athena presenting a victor's bow, to the newly-built horseshoe-shaped Olympic stadium, to the classical columns and arches of the Acropolis, to the city of Athens in the distance, to the modern title "les Jeux Olympiques", to the antique-style brown tones, this is a fitting combination of the ancient and the new, and a fine representation of the Olympic ideal. For all fans of the Olympic movement, this is a must for the wall of your home or office!
