1972 Olympic posters Walker Art Gallery

To celebrate London 2012 the Walker Art Gallery is displaying for the first time a series of striking lithographic prints from its collection that were the official posters for the 1972 Munich Olympics.

The posters feature the work of world-famous artists including David Hockney, Allen Jones, Oskar Kokoschka, Ron Kitaj and Eduardo Chillida. The Pop Art spirit of the early 1970s is very much in evidence in these vibrantly coloured images.

This display has been prepared with funds from The Molly Tomlinson Bequests.
