Documents decoratifs. Planche 57. [Female nude, writing - poster for Art et Décoration Revue mensuelle d'Art moderne].
Paris, Librairie Central des Beaux Arts, 1901. Folio (46 x 33 cm). Original print in full colour.
A fine print from Alphonse Mucha's quintessential Art Nouveau book, "Documents décoratifs". Alfons "Alphonse" Maria Mucha (1860-1939) was a Czech decorative artist, who wanted to bring aesthetic values into arts and crafts. He invented the "Mucha Style" which soon became known as Art Nouveau. His work immediately became immensely popular and has remained very sought-after. This is one of the most iconic plates. Very light toning, tiny bump to upper left outer corner, otherwise fine. A rare print.
