This is a poster for the 1936 Winter Olympic Games, which were held in Germany. A victorious skier basks in the glory of his victory in the Alpine location that was used for the ski events, Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This design was extremely popular; it was printed in 13 languages and also used on smaller flyers and brochures. This is the German version.

The Winter Olympic Games were held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen from February 6 - 16. These Games featured 17 events in 4 sports. These preceded the better known 1936 Summer Olympics held in Berlin, Germany where Jesse Owens won multiple medals and upset Adolf Hitler and his rising Nazi regime.

Ludwig Hohlwein (1874 - 1949) is an important figure in the history of poster design. He was trained as an architect but changed his career to advertising at age 30 (in 1904). He was among first artists to reject the Art Nouveau style and helped to usher in the Art Deco style in Europe. Over his career he created over 400 posters, and often depicted animals, such as this image for Panther brand shoes from the 1920s.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
