Shown in the Poster House (New York) exhibition "Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau./Nouvelle Femme," June 20-October 6, 2019. Note: This exquisite Art Nouveau image depicts Juliet at the moment when Romeo, lingering in the Montague''s garden, catches sight of her on her balcony. She is illuminated by the dawn light, represented in the jewel by the sparkling diamonds framing her head and the panes of glowing plique-a-jour enamel behind her. Though he first sees Juliet dancing with another man, Romeo is not put off, predicting that their love will prove "a beauteous flower" and identifying her with light: "she teaches the torches to burn bright". Meanwhile, behind a veneer of obedience, Juliette, resolute, witty, and loyal, chooses independence in death over life with the man her father has commanded her to marry. In part thanks to his captivating and complex woman heroes like Juliet, Shakespeare "went global" in the 19th century, inspiring world artists not only in drama but painting, printmaking, fiction, music and jewelry.

Pictured in Masterpieces of American Jewelry, by Judith Price, Echo Point Books & Media, LLC, 2004, page 28. Note: Women at the turn of the century would have quickly identified this figure playing the double flute as Euterpe, the classical muse of musical inspiration. Women were, in fact, the new celebrities of the music world. Since the mid-19th century, woman singers had been blazing a trail through it, as composers began to write parts for sopranos and altos, parts that had previously been reserved for male countertenors. Women star singers dominated the stage, receiving high artistic praise from the newspaper critics. Actively and thoughtfully managing their own careers, they cultivated devoted followers, staging brilliant publicity stunts, quickly rising to the challenge of independence. They realized the need to control their images, and insisted on oversight of costume design, aware that every appearance was critical. This jewel''s musical muse, depicted in the midst of performance and transformation, was a symbolic celebration of women''s daring achievements in this newly opened world for them.
