ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) [THREE SEASONS.] Circa 1898.
24 1/2x16 3/4 inches, 62 1/4x42 1/2 cm. [F. Champenois, Paris.]
Condition A-: minor mat staining; upper left corner replaced, not affecting image; tipped to paper at top edge. Paper. Matted and framed.
Very little is known about this piece. It is assumed to have been printed by Champenois and may well have been part of a larger image. Mysteriously, no research has been able to explain why Mucha only depicted three seasons. Rennert / Weill 48, Lendl p. 194, Mucha / Henderson 9, Mucha / Bridges P8.
