More Information
Poster celebrating the 1956 Olympic Games hosted by Melbourne. This was the first Olympic Games to be held in the Southern Hemisphere but unfortunately was somewhat marred by political unrest at the time. Mounted police are leading the way and the artist leaves the viewer with a lasting visual impression. James Northfield 1887 - 1973  was born at Inverleigh in Victoria in 1887 and educated in Geelong. He served his apprenticeship in Geelong and Melbourne, had a studio in the Melbourne city for 25 years, and was a Director of the Art Training Institute of Victoria.

This is truly an outstanding quality poster. It is printed on Fuji crystal archive photographic paper and is by no means a flimsy poster.
