Rudolf Pereles : the poster boy of 1928 / Gheranrdo Bonini

Bonini, Gherardo

This article focuses on an intriguing story surrounding the Amsterdam poster. As the IOC were unable to agree on a rights deal with the descendants of the designer, they have used an image from the cover of a Swiss book instead. This was based on the photograph of an Austrian wrestler, who was recreating the pose of a statue by German sculptor Max Kruse in 1879.
