9781552126066: The Forgotten Olympic Art Competitions



This is the history of one of the most important cultural collaborations of the 20th Century, the joining of art and sport. Here is the story of the inclusion of the Fine Arts as competition events in the modern Olympic Games.

Recounted within these pages for the first time are the ideas and techniques that briefly created a union of these disparate worlds. Follow themas they conducted what were the Olympic Art Competitions of the 20th Century.

In this volume you will meet the people who forged that union and those who destroyed it. You will also discover why you never heard of these competitions. Here too are the results of the art events and your opportunity to meet a few of the artists who pursued their quest for Olympic Gold.
Also available in hardcover through www.amazon.com, www.barnesandnoble.com and www.chapters.indigo.ca.

About the Author:

When the author could not find a book about the Olympic art competitions he began a quest to learn as much as possible about these events. He spent over seven years researching primary source documents from around the world dealing with these competetions and has woven the story they tell into "The Forgotten Olympic Art Competitions," the first book to be published on the subject.

The author is a freelance researcher/writer and a member of the International Society of Olympic Historians.
