Description: This bold image was created by Edouard Elzingre (1880-1966) to mark the 20th anniversary of the modern re-establishment of the ancient Olympic games. In 1914 members of the sixth Olympic Committee met in Paris to plan the forthcoming Olympic events. They used the occasion to hold a special ceremony at the Sorbonne where, twenty years earlier, the Olympic Committee was revived and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) created.
