During Christmas, 1894, Mucha changed history by designing his first poster for Sarah Bernhardt. Just over a year later, the great actress began a six-month American tour, for which she chose to reuse the now-famous original image, altering it slightly. Printed in America by the renowned Strobridge lithography company, the poster lacks the original title, "Gismonda," at the top and has different text at the bottom.
