    Description

    1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics Limited Edition Artist-Signed Poster Set of 15. Fifty-two years after Los Angeles first hosted the Summer Games, the greatest amateur international competition of them all returned to the City of Angels, delivering a new batch of heroes to fans of the home nation. Carl Lewis matched the earth-shaking feat of Jesse Owens in Berlin, taking Gold in the 100 meters, 200 meters, 4×100 meters relay and the long jump, while Mary Lou Retton became America's sweetheart and the first gymnast outside Eastern Europe to take gold in the gymnastics all-around.

    Here we encounter an assembly of a different breed of legends, fifteen of the most popular and critically-acclaimed visual artists active during the Reagan years. Each of the following created an artwork for a commission of 750 posters, each top-quality print signed by the artist in pencil:

    Carlos Almaraz, John Baldessari, Jennifer Bartlett, Lynda Benglis, Billy Al Bengston, Jonathan Borofsky, Richard Diebenkorn, Sam Francis, April Greiman/Jayme Odgers, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Martin Puryear, Robert Rauschenberg, Raymond Saunders and Garry Winogrand.

    The posters measure 24x36" in size and are housed in a special cardboard and linen folio as originally issued. Condition is NRMT-MT throughout.
