Portrait of Bob Pettis for Los Angeles 1984 Olympic Games (Hand Signed), 1982

Offset Lithograph, Pencil Signed. With COA. Unframed.

24 × 36 in

61 × 91.4 cm

Edition of 750 (though only 250 are said to remain)
Hand signed from the limited edition of 750, featuring bodybuilder Bill Pettis (the man with the largest arms in the world) taken at Venice Beach. Unnumbered. This is one of 750 hand signed lithographic posters, published in 1982 to celebrate the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics ; however, according to the publisher, after the first 200 were sold, the remaining editions were destroyed - so the edition is actually more scarce than it appears. The Olympic Committee commissioned 15 nationally known artists, including Garry Winogrand to create unique designs to promote the event. This was Winogrand's contribution to the portfolio. In 2017, the Olympic Museum in Lausanne Switzerland featured all 15 lithographs from this portfolio: “The 1980s were marked by non-conformism, eccentricity, audacity and joie de vivre,” say the exhibition organizers, “All these elements are clearly expressed in the stylistic vocabulary chosen by the organizers of the 1984 Games in Los Angeles, with its fun approach and acid colors.” This work is unframed and in fine condition; excellent provenance as it was acquired as part of the complete portfolio of limited edition hand signed Olympic prints, all held in the original box with colophon and authenticity documentation. This will be the first time the print has been removed. Excellent condition; never framed. Copyright 1982 Los Angeles Olympics Organizing Committee, Published by Knapp Communications Corporation.


 Signed in graphite pencil on the recto.  Accompanied COA from publisher as well as COA from gallery. Unnumbered.


Acquired as part of the complete 1984 Olympic Lithographic Poster Portfolio of  15 hand signed prints, in the original box with colophon.
