Only four painters are known to have entered the first Olympic painting competition. The winner, Carlo Pellegrini, had been invited by Pierre, Baron de Coubertin, who was likely also the jury for the competition. Living in Switzerland, Pellegrini often painted winter scenes, which he also did for his winning work in the 1912 Olympics, called "Winter Sports".
