ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939). LEFÈVRE - UTILE / BISCUITS. Two biscuit tin labels. Circa 1896. Each approximately 11x9 inches, 29x23 cm.

Estimate: $500 - $750

Description: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) LEFÈVRE - UTILE / BISCUITS. Two biscuit tin labels. Circa 1896. Each approximately 11 1/2x9 inches, 29 1/4x23 cm. Condition generally A. Framed. In 1882 when Louis Lefèvre-Utile took over his family's biscuit company, he began to turn it into one of France's leading brands through his aggressive and creative use of advertising. This included not only posters, but also marketing and packaging campaigns as well. In addition to posters for the company Alphonse Mucha also designed labels for their tins. On each label, one of the panels is upside down. This is because when they are adhered to tins of biscuits, with the central image placed on top and with the sides folded down, the final product will have each image properly oriented.

ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939). SALON DES CENT. 1896. 24x17 inches, 62x43 cm. F. Champenois, Paris.

Estimate: $12,000 - $18,000

Description: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) SALON DES CENT. 1896. 24 1/2x17 inches, 62 1/4x43 1/4 cm. F. Champenois, Paris. Condition B+: repaired tears at edges, some into text; minor creases in margins and image; slight loss of gold pigment in upper image; hinged to mat on verso. Mounted to paper. Matted and framed. This poster represents the start of a long collaboration between Mucha and La Plume, the influential magazine with the associated exhibition hall that played such a prominent role in the poster scene in fin-de-siècle Paris. One year after he designed this poster, the magazine dedicated an entire issue to Mucha and gave him a one-man show. While Mucha was designing this poster, Léon Deschamps, La Plume's publisher, went to visit the artist at his studio. Deschamps recalls that the poster design he saw at that time featured "a half-nude woman, her inclined head resting nonchalantly on one hand, her golden hair curling like a halo in rich arabesques - those famous 'macaroni' which tomorrow would be celebrated and copied by all the apes of art - a divine languor lingering over the clean outlines of her face, the whole emanating an indefinable charm." Mucha protested that the poster wasn't finished but Deschamps, self-aggrandizingly insisted "print it as it is and you will produce a masterpiece of the illustrative decorative poster" (La Plume-Mucha Special Issue, 1897, p. 4).

ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939). CASSAN FILS. 1896. 69x26 inches, 175x67 cm. Cassan Fils, Toulouse.

Estimate: $3,000 - $4,000

Description: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) CASSAN FILS. 1896. 69x26 1/2 inches, 175 1/4x67 1/4 cm. Cassan Fils, Toulouse. Condition B: restored losses, repaired tears, creases and overpainting in image and along vertical and horizontal folds and seam; water stain in bottom margin. Two-sheets. Framed. Cassan was the largest and most important lithographer in Southwest France. His firm, which had an office in Paris, handled major accounts and also represented some of the best artists of the day, including Jane Atché and Lucien Baylac. Mucha's image is an elaborate and exquisite self advertisement for the printer, featuring a seamless blend of allegorical printing imagery with fantasy. "The muscular printer is an allegorical figure, representing the [printing] industry. An unusual border of eyes in the mosaic background probably is meant to indicate the multitude of readers for whom the printing trade works. It is also one of the mystic symbols used by Mucha in several other works" (Rennert / Weill p. 70). The young lady is herself representative of the public that patronizes printers. She is marked by her beauty, a state of semi-undress and stylized cascading hair. In a brilliant self-referential detail, she is pulling prints straight off the press that feature other young women with equally flowing locks - as if Mucha were indicating how his archetypical treatment of female tresses was about to take over the industry. This is the large format. Rennert / Weill 11, DFP-II 640, Lendl 20, Mucha / Bridges A24, Triumph des Jugendstils p. 55, Reims 897.

ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939). LA DAME AUX CAMELIAS. 1896. 81x29 inches, 205x75 cm. F. Champenois, Paris.

Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000

Description: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) LA DAME AUX CAMELIAS. 1896. 81x29 3/4 inches, 205 3/4x75 1/2 cm. F. Champenois, Paris. Condition A- / B+: light water staining in bottom margin; minor losses at top edge; creases in margins and image. Two-sheets. Sarah Bernhardt's favorite play was Alexandre Dumas' masterpiece, La Dame aux Camelias. The poster Mucha designed for the 1896 revival also turned out to be one of Bernhardt's favorites (ten years later she used the same image to advertise her American Farewell Tour). True to form, Mucha captures the spirit of the production in his graphics, depicting the camelias both at the bottom of the poster and behind the actress's ear. He also includes two hearts in the decorative border to remind viewers that the play is a dramatic love story. And as was his custom, he groups the typography together at both the top and bottom of the image. Here, however, he also adds the genius touch of an artist with the deepest admiration for his subject, depicting Bernhardt in all of her grace and elegance, clothed in a magnificent costume and placed sublimely against a delicate background of silver stars. A masterpiece of Art Nouveau design. This is the rare version before text, and before the addition of the final color plate, violet. Rennert / Weill 13 (var 1), Lendl / Paris 4, DFP-II 627, Maitres 144, Weill p. 40, Maitres 1900 p. 24, Mucha / Bridges A11, Art Nouveau p. 110.
