Once again a masterpiece of unparalleled beauty, created around 1900 by Alphonse Mucha 🇨🇿 (1860-1939).
He is considered the "king" of the poster printed in color.
A true symbolic figure of Art Nouveau, the Czech is inseparable from the Belle Époque.
In Paris, he became famous by magnifying the actress Sarah Bernhardt, triumphant Desdemona of the Parisian theaters. His art, full of seduction, between illustration and poster, knows throughout the world a success which does not deny itself.
The "Mucha style" is all the rage, so much so that it is crowned with a silver medal at the 1900 Universal Exhibition. However, the artist continued his career in the United States. He hoped to be recognized there as a painter, but it was still his talent as a poster artist that made his reputation.
