About The Work

Of an official edition of 750, only about 200-250 are said to remain of this print, published in 1982 to celebrate the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. The Olympic Committee commissioned 15 nationally known artists to create unique designs to promote the event. This was Roy Lichtenstein's contribution to the portfolio. his 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, so authenticity is unconditionally guaranteed forever. Excellent condition; never framed. All of the works in this rare portfolio, including this Lichtenstein lithographic poster, are unnumbered, but published in the limited edition of 750 hand-signed. This work, the equestrian, depicts layered images of a blue jockey riding a red horse. The piece is signed in graphite to the lower right, and is marked "Reproduction from “The Red Horsemen” copyright 1975 Roy Lichtenstein, Copyright 1982 Los Angeles Olympics Organizing Committee, Published by Knapp Communications Corporation". Excellent condition; unframed. 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.”
