Story of this Masterpiece

Created in 1898.

This epic illustration from 1898 shows a rather buffed man, probably in his mid 20s, wearing a red bodysuit and red boxing shoes with yellowish-golden applications.

The old school weight lifter is introduced as Louis Cyr, the strongest man on earth, holding a record of lifting 4.300 lbs (~ 1.950 kg). Born Cyprien-Cyr Noah in Canada in 1863, he used to work on a farm from age 12 and lifted a whole horse at age 18. Cyr's peak physical characteristics are documented at a height of 5'9" (174 cm) and a weight of 396 lb (180 kg).

Louis Cyr became a monumental legend whose achievements have gotten massively exaggerated over time. However, the factual documented feats of his strength include lifting a platform containing 18 men (at a total of 4336 lb, 1.967 kg) or lifting 534 pounds (242 kg) with only one finger.

This beautiful vintage poster has been created by an unknown artist to promote an event where participants could not only get to live witness but also challenge the strength of the strongest man on earth. The winner would receive a huge prize of $25.000 (roughly $788.000 in 2021).

The color scheme of this painting is very rare, featuring a unique blue and green faded background that serves as an ideal contrast to the bright, attention catching elements upfront. The ornaments surrounding the captions leave an almost Art-Déco type of impression. This awesome poster is a guaranteed attention-catcher that will spark interesting conversation and easily combinable with similar colors or even tropical elements. Grab it now!
