RARE Hundertwasser 1972 Olympics Munich Massacre Print Poster Ltd Ed 1612 / 3999

This listing is for an original Hundertwasser print/poster from the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany. This is a silk screened print and is #1612 of 3999 in a limited edition series. The 1972 olympics were overshadowed by what became known as the Munich Massacre in which a number of Israeli athletes were taken hostage and killed by Palestinian militants. The print measures about 25 1/2" x 40" inches including the metal frame. It is in excellent overall condition with a few vertical creases (see photos below). The print has not been been mounted to the posterboard. We have a low opening bid price, so don't miss your chance to win! Please see our other listings for another Hundertwasser poster.

We could reduce the shipping cost at the buyer's request by not including the frame.

Silk screen in 21 colors with metal embossings in 5 colors on heavy tarred brown paper (102.5 x 65 cm)

Hundertwassers comment about the work:
 
An odd premonition: the drops of blood on the poster I painted before the massacre during the Olympic Games. It is based on my picture 147 The Match of the Century. In the middle of it I painted in the orthodox church which "Father Timofey", a self-willed, self-proclaimed Russian-orthodox priest, had built in defiance of any building permit right in the middle of where the Olympic Games were to take place. However, the love of the people of Munich prevented the church from being torn down. Several times I visited him and his onion turrets, whose outside covering consisted of shiny tinfoil from chocolate wrappings. I felt my predilection for gold and silver and metal-stamping confirmed. It was a holy feeling. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonn??, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, pp. 832-833)

Hundertwasser was one of the most important artists & architects during the 20 century He was born in Austria in 1928. He believed that people were not happy when they have lost their connection with nature.
