Description: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) L''ESTAMPE MODERNE / GRAVURES EN COULEURS. 1898.
33x23 3/4 inches, 83 3/4x60 1/4 cm. F. Champenois, Paris.
Condition A: minor repaired tear at lower left edge. Framed. Unexamined out of frame.
To promote sales of L''Estampe Moderne, F. Champenois wanted a quick and inexpensive solution. He turned to Alphonse Mucha and the image the master had already designed for the cover of each month''s portfolio. The image was easy to reproduce, as it used only one color; Champenois enlarged it and added text about the publication. The simplicity of the printing should by no means belittle the elegance of the elongated portrait of a woman holding a pen. The image is an example of Mucha''s prowess as a draughtsman. Rennert / Weill 38 (var 1), Gold 88, Mucha / Henderson p. 123 (var), Mucha / Bridges R10a (var), Reade 10 (var), Spirit of Art Nouveau p. 25 (var).
