Pair of French Art Nouveau Lithographs, "Dawn and Dusk", by Alphonse Mucha

A pair of French Art Nouveau lithographs, "Dawn and Dusk," by Alphonse Mucha. These two panels both representing reclining figures, are among the few horizontal formats produced by Mucha. These two ladies represent the terminal points of the sun's daily journey. Dawn is represented b a girl removing the coverlet from her nude torso as she looks towards the rising sun.

French Art Nouveau Lithograph, "La Dame aux Camelias," by Alphonse Mucha

A French Art Nouveau lithograph by Alphonse Mucha depicting Sarah Bernhardt in the role of "La Dame aux Camelias". Mucha was commissioned to design this poster for a revival, in 1896, of the play, "La dame aux camellias", featuring the beloved Sarah Bernhardt. It is notable for its depiction of contemporary costume. An iconic image of fin-de siecle art, it was featured in the album, "Les maîtres de l'affiche". It was so admired by S. Berhardt that she re-used a version of it for her American tours in 1905 and 1910. A similar lithograph is pictured in: Alphone Mucha: The Complete Posters and Panels, by Rennert/Weill, 13, Var. 1; Lendl/Paris, 4; Mucha/Art Nouveau, 8; DFP-II, 267; Maitres, 144; Weill, p. 40; Reims, 898; PAI-LIX, 477.

French Art Nouveau LIthograph, "La Trappistine," by Alphonse Mucha

A French lithograph by Alphonse Mucha advertising La Trappistine. La Trappistine was a liqueur made in Paris, allegedly from a recipe handed down by Trappist monks. Here Mucha depicts a slender young lady in a garcefully draped pose, her head encircled by a halo . The embellishment with the Maltese cross serves to remind us of the religious order involved in the preparation of the beverage. Her hair hangs down in a single thick strand, which leads our eye to the tabouret in the foreground, holding the bottle. Circa 1897 A similar lithograph is pictured and discussed in: Alphonse Mucha: The Complete Posters and Panels, by Jack Rennert and Alain Weill, Boston: G.K. Hall & Co., 1984, pp. 134-135.

Sarah Bernhardt as "La Princess Lointaine" by Mucha

A French Art Nouveau lithograph by Alphonse Mucha. An exquisite portrait of Sarah Bernhardt in the role of "La Princess Lointaine" is used here for publicizing "LU" biscuits, with a handwritten testimonial by the actress herself: "Je ne trouve rien de meilleur qu'un petit LU; oh si, deux petits LU." (I haven't found anything better than a little LU--oh yes, two little LU). "La Princess Lointaine" was one of Sarah's great successes, a play written for her by Rostand from an old medieval tale, and shown for the first time in 1895. She played Melisande, daughter of one of the crusader kings from Tripoli who becomes famous far and wide for her beauty. When word of her charm reaches a French knight, Jofroi, he sets out on a long and exhausting journey at the end of which he dies in ecstasy after having accomplished his goal of seeing her and telling her of his love. The Lefèvre-Utile Company also used other artists to produce posters in this series which featured testimonials by prominent personalities; many were also issued as postcards. Pictured in "Alphonse Mucha: The Complete Posters and Panels" by Jack Rennert and Alain Weill", Page 308-309, Plate 86.
