French Art Nouveau Lithograph "Salons des Cent XXeme Exposition" by Mucha

A French Art Nouveau "Salons des Cent XXeme Exposition" lithograph by Alphonse Mucha. Salon des Cent was the exhibition hall associated with La Plume magazine. This poster was Mucha's introductory gift to La Plume in appreciation for being invited to join the magazine's roster of artists. La Plume eventually sold all of Mucha's posters through their art department and honored him with a one-man show the following year. The languorous woman with long, entwined, curling tresses represents feminine inspiration and ultimately became a symbol for the Art Nouveau movement. The quill and paintbrush she holds in her hand is a direct reference to La Plume - both the exhibition hall and the magazine. A similar lithograph is described and pictured in: "Alphonse Mucha: The Complete Posters and Panels", by Jack Rennert and Alain Weill, Boston: G.K. Hall & Co., 1984, pp. 72-75.

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 gracefully 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. 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.

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. This is the first appearance of the perfect form of Mucha's often-used motif, a 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.
