ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939). DOCUMENTS DÉCORATIFS. Complete portfolio with 72 plates. 1902. Each plate approximately 18x13 inches, 45x33

Estimate: $15,000 - $20,000

Description: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) DOCUMENTS DÉCORATIFS. Complete portfolio with 72 plates. 1902. Each plate approximately 18x13 inches, 45 3/4x33 cm. Emile Levy, Paris. Condition varies, generally B+ / A-: skinning and wear to portfolio cover and spine; foxing and minor creases on some plates. Mucha had a privileged relationship with the Librairie Centrale des Beaux-Arts, the publisher of the Documents Décoratifs. When he arrived in Paris in 1890, the library was 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 the bible of Art Nouveau decorative elements. In this portfolio, Mucha shows examples of jewelry, furniture and silverware, and illustrates how to draw women and flowers (the two main themes of Art Nouveau), in all cases brilliantly demonstrating his stylistic prowess. Each of the 72 plates is a masterpiece of Art Nouveau design. Complete copies are extremely rare, since most have been broken up to sell plate by plate. Lendl p. 132-33 no. 105, Mucha L31, Spirit of Art Nouveau 123, Art Nouveau p. 114.

ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939). [TIMES OF THE DAY.] Four decorative panels in folding screen. 1899. Each panel 40x14 inches, 101x36 cm. [F.

Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000

Description: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) [TIMES OF THE DAY.] Four decorative panels in folding screen. 1899. Each panel 40x14 1/2 inches, 101 1/2x36 3/4 cm. [F. Champenois, Paris.] Condition varies, generally B: abrasions at edges; foxing, staining and rippling in margins and image. Mounted on Beechwood screen. An exquisite Art Nouveau quartet representing "Nightly Rest," "Evening Reverie," "Daytime Dash" and "Morning Awakening." "The borders are worked out in such an exquisite pattern that each picture appears to be mounted in an elaborate frame of its own, or else seen through a decorated window" (Rennert / Weill p. 232). Mucha brilliantly adds an additional flourish by presenting different floral patterns behind each border. The fashion of putting Mucha''s posters onto screens may have originated with the artist himself, as visitors to his studio noticed "here and there on mobile screens posters by the master taking on the airs of icons" (Abel Fulcran Cesar Fabre, Le Mois Litteraire et Pittoresque, no. 17, May 1900, pps 579-598).

ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939). SARAH BERNHARDT / AMERICAN TOUR. 1896. 78x29 inches, 200x73 cm. The Strobridge Lith, Co, Cincinnati.

Estimate: $7,000 - $10,000

Description: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) SARAH BERNHARDT / AMERICAN TOUR. 1896. 78x29 inches, 200x73 3/4 cm. The Strobridge Lith, Co, Cincinnati. Condition A / A-: minor water staining in bottom margins. Two-sheets. Framed. 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. Rennert / Weill 3 (var. 2), Lendl 13, Art Nouveau p. 110 (var).

ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939). SALON DES CENT. Deluxe edition. 1896. 24x16 inches, 61x42 cm. A. Davy, Paris.

Estimate: $20,000 - $30,000

Description: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) SALON DES CENT. Deluxe edition. 1896. 24x16 1/2 inches, 61x42 cm. A. Davy, Paris. Condition A. Hand-signed and numbered 14 by the artist in black ink. Framed. Mucha''s poster design for the Salon des Cent was the start of a long collaboration between the artist and La Plume. One year after he created this poster, the magazine dedicated an entire issue to Mucha and gave him a one-man show. While Mucha was working on 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). All of La Plume''s Salon des Cent posters were available for sale to the public. Regular copies were generally sold for 2.5 francs, but they also produced some deluxe editions on Japan paper or vellum. In addition to being printed on special paper, these deluxe editions were signed by the artists and numbered (although no print run was ever specified, it is universally believed that the number was 50). This image is number 14 of the deluxe vellum edition.

ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939). [TÊTES BYZANTINE.] Two decorative panels. Circa 1897. Each approximately 18x14 inches, 46x37 cm. [F. Champe

Estimate: $12,000 - $18,000

Description: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) [TÊTES BYZANTINE.] Two decorative panels. Circa 1897. Each approximately 18 1/4x14 3/4 inches, 46 1/4x37 1/2 cm. [F. Champenois, Paris.] Condition A-: light staining and darkening at edges. Mounted to period board. Framed separately. Mucha''s graphic work was often marked by Byzantine influences and styles, beginning with his very first poster for Gismonda in 1894. In visually extolling the splendors of ancient Byzantium, Mucha relied on the use of gold and bronze colors, created sumptuous and intricate designs for the jewelry depicted in his images, employed mosaic or mosaic-style decorative elements in many of his works, and elevated his subjects to iconic status by using halos. Anointing these two profiles as "Têtes Byzantines" confirms his adherence to this impressive influence. These two decorative panels were among the most successful ever published by Champenois, and the printer issued them in many variations. Intended to hang facing each other, the blonde and brunette have cascading hair that interrupt the halos behind them, tantalizingly breaking through Mucha''s trademark mystical circle. The precise yet delicate outlining of their faces is a tour-de-force of design. Rennert / Weill 40, Lendl p. 196 & 197 (var), Mucha Grand Palais 37 & 38, Style Mucha 9, Darmstadt 65 & 66 and cover, Mucha / Henderson 35 & 36, Mucha / Bridges P16, Triumph des Jugendstils 67 & 68 (var), Spirit of Art Nouveau 48 (var), 150th Mucha 89 and cover.

Salon des Cent. 1896

Estimate: $10,000 - $12,000

Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 16 1/2 x 25 in./42 x 63.5 cm Imp. F. Champenois, Paris "This poster is one of the artist's first works to follow his standard archetype. It advertises the twentieth exhibition of the group of artists who exhibited at the premises of the art journal La Plume. The members were famous Parisian artists: Toulouse-Lautrec, Bonnard, Steinlen, Ensor, Grasset, Rassenfosse, and the American Louis Rhead. Mucha's ambition was to become a member of the group, and he succeeded with this poster, which attracted the attention of the gallery owner, Léon Deschamps. [He] visited Mucha in his studio while he was designing the poster. Fascinated by what he saw, he persuaded Mucha to print it in this unfinished version, according to the artist. Mucha agreed, and the publisher's feeling, that this lightly outlined, impressive poster would make Mucha famous, proved to be correct" (Mucha/Art Nouveau, p. 156). (Exhibition)

Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 15 3/8 x 20 in./39 x 50.8 cm Imp. F. Champenois, Paris More than any other work by Mucha, this languid beauty established him as the master of wild hair and the creator of unforgettable popular images. The poster was used for years in many variants all over the world, sometimes with the marginal text in various languages, to promote Job cigarette rolling papers. A classic by any standard.

Champenois, Paris Perched upon a silvery moon-frame, the Muse of Painting holds a flower in bloom, which itself blooms rainbows in widening concentric circles – reminding us of the Sun and the spectrum of light which makes the Art of Painting possible. This is one of four panels in the set titled "The Arts" – Dance (lot 429), Music (see PAI-XIX, 433), and Poetry (PAI-XIX, 434) rounding out the quadrivium. Rare! (Art Nouveau, Literary)

Champenois, Paris In subdued pastels, this "quartet of barefoot young ladies represents the different times of the day. The borders are decorated in identical patterns... and the crisscross areas at the top have different floral panels. Each girl appears in an outdoor setting, with slender trees or tall flowers emphasizing her slim figure... The borders are worked out in such an exquisite pattern that each picture appears to be mounted in an elaborate frame of its own, or else seen through a decorated window. Quite possibly Mucha's whole concept for the series was that of gothic stained-glass windows" (Rennert/Weill, p. 232). This larger format variant does not include the bottom text indicating the individual time of day. (Flowers)

"This series of decorative panels sold for 12 francs. It represents two pensive young girls, a blonde and a brunette, the one [seen here] holding ... a goose quill and some foliage. Typically Art Nouveau ornamentation predominates in the background motifs and on the jewelry. As was the case with all the decorative panels, conceived from the start as decorative works, Champenois ended up selling the art to clients to use as calendars, posters or advertising materials" (Lendl/Prague, p. 218).

Champenois, Paris "This is one of the rarest posters by Mucha – a great pity because it is a veritable pastel rhapsody. It is one of the very few of his works that does not bear his signature – although, in this case, there is not the slightest doubt that it is actually Mucha's work... Flowers whose fragrances are used in the trade abound throughout the design, in the girl's hair as well as in the decorative panels... The girl...is one of Mucha's loveliest creations; a bit more like a real girl of flesh and blood than some of the idealized ladies...which he often depicts." (Rennert/Weill, pl. 71). (Product)

Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 40 3/4 x 60 1/2 in./103.5 x 153.7 cm Imp F. Champenois, Paris "The jovial beer drinker has her long flowing tresses adorned with some appropriate beer ingredients, including barley stalks and green hops, and field poppy flowers indigenous to northeastern France. This is another one of Mucha's characteristic designs featuring a beauty, semi-circular motifs, and artfully meandering hair" (Rennert/Weill, p. 126). The product itself being advertised is a bit vague -- while there are a handfull of other posters for Bières de la Meuse, it is never clear if they are for a particular brand of beer by that name or simply for a myriad of beers produced in the Meuse region of France. The town shown in the lowermost register is that of Bar-le-Duc, capital of the Meuse département in Lorraine, which was home to many breweries at the turn of the century. As such, our bet is that this poster promotes the many wonderful libations created in the area. (Alcohol, Beer, Art Nouveau)

La Tosca. 1898

Estimate: $8,000 - $10,000

Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 14 5/8 x 41 1/8 in./372. x 40.5 cm Imp. F. Champenois, Paris "Today La Tosca is known to most people only from the opera which Giacomo Puccini composed and introduced in 1900; however, for the 13 years prior to that, it was a romantic tragedy, written especially for Sarah Bernhardt by Victorian Sardou. Mucha's poster shows Bernhardt in her costume for the first act of the play, dressed in a fashion dating from 1800 when the play takes place." (Rennert/Weill, p. 221). (Opera, Flowers)

La Passion. 1904

Estimate: $12,000 - $15,000

Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 28 5/8 x 77 3/4 in./72.8 x 197.3 cm Imp. F. Champenois, Paris "Mucha, brought up in an atmosphere of intense religious fervor, felt at home with sacred motifs and was adept at expressing himself through them. For Haraucourt's La Passion, he created one of the most compassionate portraits of Christ, frail and unabashedly human, his eyes asking not for pity as much as for understanding. The usual circular pattern in the background is provided by the crown of thorns, within which may be seen the three crosses of the Calvary at his right shoulder, and the Omar mosque in Jerusalem at his left shoulder" (Rennert/Weill, p. 312). This was the last poster he created in Paris, just before leaving for the United States. It is fitting that the first one (Gismonda) was also based on a religious theme. This is a two-sheet poster. (Art Nouveau)

Condition Report: B/ Slight tears at folds and seam.

1900 World's Fair.

Estimate: $4,000 - $5,000

Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 12 3/8 x 17 1/4 in./31.4 x 43.8 cm Stern, Paris This is an extremely rare artist's proof print commissioned by the Chamber of Commerce and Czech House, published by Stern in 1900. And it is marvelously lush. The exceptionally adorned and coiffed young woman of the new century sits, with a frankly erotic gaze, holding between her left thumb and index finder a single stem that branches into a half-dozen white roses. In the background we can just make out the Pont Alexandre III, the Grand Palais and the Dome of Les Invalides in Paris. The image was also used as the cover of the July 1, 1905 issue of The Index (see Mucha/Bridges, p. 175). It's #11 of 50 numbered proofs; this is the full sheet with printer stamp. (World's Fair)

Each lady represents a jewel whose color, in various hues, permeates her design, including the dress, flowers, and the mosaic pattern in the halo-like decorative circle behind her.

Flirt. 1900

Estimate: $7,000 - $9,000

Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 11 3/8 x 24 3/4 in./29 x 63 cm Imp. F. Champenois, Paris After the 1900 World's Fair in Paris, this popular design by Mucha from 1899 was reprinted, noting that the product had won an award at the event. "To bring home the name of the product, Mucha created a discreet flirtation which embodies the 19th-century ideal of a romantic encounter: the girl demure and coy, the gentleman persuasive, the setting a fragrant garden. But he didn't forget the sponsor: The wrought-iron gate carries the name, and the girl's dress features a print pattern of the letters L-U, a subtle decorative reminder" (Gold, p. 46). (Art Nouveau)

Femme Parmi Les Fleurs. ca. 1900

Estimate: $4,000 - $5,000

Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 29 5/8 x 23 in./75.2 x 58.5 cm "The Woman Among the Flowers" peers out at you with a sidelong glance, hoping you will notice her Classical beauty nearly hidden amid a riot of flamboyant competitors. "Although Mucha made other designs that were printed on cloth (satin or velveteen), this is the only decorative set of panels we know of that was sold only in the cloth version." (Rennert/Weill, A11). You'll find Mucha's signature in an unusual location: on a flower-stem of this borderless design. Printed on velveteen. (Flowers)

The small volume, produced in an extremely limited edition of 77 copies (this is #77), is also signed by Lesehrada. A title-page excerpt from "Magic Art," one of the poems, is translated as: "A Secret Brotherhood forms / artists of all times and ages, / in them the sacred fire burning, / the dream of a man, / which was created to higher living / and to whom the Temple of Truth and Beauty / with his hand in the darkness lit!" (Art Nouveau, Literary, Signed)
