Welcome to Rio 2016.

In 1912 Italian Giovanni Pellegrini was besting his rivals ― in painting.

In 1924 William Butler Yeats’ brother Jack won a silver medal in the Olympic Games in painting. And sure enough, a look at Olympics results history shows that Jack B. Yeats placed second in the 1924 painting event for his work “The Liffey Swim.
There were 146 medalists in the art competitions that were part of the Olympic Games from 1912 until 1948

Two gold medals won in 1928 by Jean Jacoby from Luxenbourg. - "Rugby" - drawing in Amsterdam and in 1924 a painting in Paris.
