This lovely and extremly rare poster depicting Stockholm's Olympic Stadium was designed by Schonberg to promote the The Swedish Games in 1916. When the OS 1916 was canceled because of the First World War, A. A. son Murray suggested that Svenska Spel be arranged as a replacement.
The Swedish Games were held twice - in 1916 and 1922. The idea was conceived when the 1916 Olympic Games were cancelled due to the ongoing conflict of the First World War.
Pictured are the towers flanking Stockholm's Olympic Stadium, built for the 1912 Games. Schönberg had entered the design competition for the poster promoting the 1912 Olympic Games and came in second place behind the winner, Olle Hjortzberg.
Mounted on linen.
