    "Deutsche Lufthansa" 1936 Olympics Airline Advertising Poster. 18" x 26.5", art by Ludwig Hohlwein, chromolithography by Kunstanstalt A.G. of Munich. In this advertisement for Germany's Lufthansa airline, a large winged man wearing an Olympic wreath is soaring over the Brandenburg Gate with an Olympic flag flying at lower left and a Junkers Ju 52/3m aircraft at right with a Nazi flag on the vertical fin and the registration number "D-DLAG." It was a plane such as this that was used to carry the Olympic Torch from Athens to Berlin for the XI Olympiad. A handsome and uncommon poster for these extremely controversial Olympic games. A couple of minor stains, pinholes at top corners, and some edge tears repaired on verso, else fine.
