    Description

    1972 Olympics Games Lot (1972). German Olympic Posters (4) (25" X 40"). Sports.
    A radical change in design was prompted by German graphic designer Otto "Otl" Aicher, whose redesign of the logo and use of pictograms continued to influence the use of stick figures for public signage. During the design phase, Aicher recruited other artists such as David Hockney, R.B. Kitaj, Tom Wesselmann, and Allen Jones to produce posters for the event. Unrestored posters with clean overall appearances. They may have general signs of use, such as very minor edge wear, creases, small tears, and unobtrusive stains. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Artwork in this lot are by Ronald Kitaj, Peter Phillips, Otmar Alt, and Josef Albers. Rolled, Very Fine-.
