The Official Report lists 450 paintings, drawings and graphic works, but those details do not match with the Art Exhibition catalog. There were 49 artists from 12 countries in the paintings category.

The gold medal winner in the sub-category Drawings And Water Colors was Luxembourger Jean Jacoby, who, with two gold medals in total, is the most successful artist in the history of the Olympic Games. At Amsterdam, he was awarded the gold medal for his drawing Rugby. Art historian Birga Schwarzer wrote about this drawing, )The evasive maneuver of a player is generated by the tension in diverging diagonals arising from the running motion of the left player and the stemming movement of the right player.)

The silver medal went to French Alexandre Virot for Gestes de Football (Fottball gestures), a work whose existence cannot be confirmed. The bronze medal was won by Polish Władysław Skoczylas for Diane. He submitted eight works in total (four woodcuts, three watercolors, a drawing). His woodcuts were characterized by medieval themes.
