French Art Nouveau Lithograph "The Four Seasons" by Alphonse Mucha

A French Art Nouveau lithograph entitled "The Seasons" by Alphonse Mucha. One of Mucha's most enduring sets, the popularity of his lively depictions made this one of the most popular decorative panel sets. The seasons are depicted out of order, from left to right: summer as a brunette lazing by a pond, spring as a blond fashioning a lute from her long hair, autumn a blazing redhead sampling the seasons harvest, and winter a brunette draped in a green clock in a snowy landscape. This set was offered for sale by print dealer A. Arnould as a supplement to his 1896 "in ten colors" catalogue for 40 francs. Circa 1896.

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.

Byzantine Heads" lithographs by Alphonse Mucha

A pair of French 'Byzantine Heads" lithographs by Alphonse Mucha. The mastery evident in creating two archetypes of the female form against a decorative background confirms Mucha's artistic maturity. Both women, portrayed in profile, have their heads decorated with beautiful jewelry, the richness and oriental nature of which suggested the name Byzantine Heads for the series. The subtle differences in details between the paintings are worth noticing. For the first time appears the perfect form of Mucha's often-used motif, circle framing each head interrupted by a strand of hair. With this device, it is as if Mucha's unreachable beauties have broken the magic border between themselves and their admirers and suggest the possibility that they might, perhaps, meet.? (Mucha/Art Nouveau, p. 192). In this version, Mucha added corners filigreed with curves to the original circular designs in order to create the standard rectangular shape of decorative panels. This is the rarest of all variants. Pictured in "Alphonse Mucha, The Complete Posters and Panels, by Jack Rennert and Alain Weill," page 167, cat. 40, variant 1.
