Mucha had a privileged relationship with the Librairie Centrale des Beaux-Arts, the publishers of the Documents Décoratifs. When he arrived in Paris in 1890, they were among the first to give him commissions for illustrations. They also published his key theoretical essays, the Documents Lithographiques and the Combinaisons Ornementales, which is rightly considered to be the bible of Art Nouveau decorative elements. In this portfolio, Mucha, who was at the height of his artistic career, shows examples of jewelry, furniture and silverware, and illustrates how to draw women and flowers, in all cases brilliantly demonstrating his stylistic prowess. It "authoritatively set down the precepts of Art Nouveau and its decorative elements" (Rennert / Weill p. 288). Includes pl. 3, 19, 30, 31, 32, 33, 36, 40, 41 and 45. Mucha Grand Palais no. 281-297, Spirit of Art Nouveau 123, Lendl p. 247-250.
