In the final poster, Mucha showed Bernhardt facing us with her cloak draped behind her. It’s a lovely little look into the artist’s creative process. (Art Nouveau; Artist: Mucha)

              May. 12, 2022

              Mucha "La Dame aux Camelias" Bernhardt Inscription

              Est: $1,500 - $2,500

              Alphonse Mucha (Czech-born expatriate in Paris, 1860-1939). "La Dame aux Camelias" (The Lady of the Camellias) color lithograph (1896-1898) signed "Mucha" on lower left AND a handwritten inscription by Sara Bernhardt (French, 1844-1923) - signed by Bernhardt and dated 1920. Sarah Bernhardt considered Alexandre Dumas' "La Dame aux Camelias" to be the most important drama of her career. Bernhardt played the title role, Camille, a courtesan dying of consumption who frees her lover from his promise to marry her. Alphonse Mucha depicts the suffering heroine in billowing garments, dramatically leaning against a balustrade with silver stars in the background. She wears a white camelia blossom in her hair, and a mysterious hand at the bottom of the image holds another camelia symbolizing death. At the top of the design are thorny roses piercing hearts, underscoring the central theme of the story: the ultimate sacrifice of love. Bernhardt adored Mucha's design and used it for her American tour of 1905-1906 and 1910-1911. Size of lithograph (sight view): 13.5" L x 5" W (34.3 cm x 12.7 cm) Size of Bernhardt's inscription (sight view): 3.2" L x 5" W (8.1 cm x 12.7 cm) Size of frame: 22.4" L x 8.875" W (56.9 cm x 22.5 cm) The inscription below is handwritten by the famous French actress, Sarah Bernhardt, on her monogrammed "SB" stationary with the "Quand Meme" banner. The text is written in French and the handwriting is difficult to decipher; however, Bernhardt's signature and the date 1920 are certainly legible. Bernhardt starred in many popular French plays of the 19th and 20th centuries. These included Alexandre Dumas "La Dame aux Camelias", Victor Hugo's "Ruy Bas", and Victorien Sardou's "La Tosca" and "Fedora". In addition, Bernhardt played Shakespeare's Hamlet and other male roles. Furthermore, she was among the first actresses to act in motion pictures and make sound recordings. Bernhardt was famous for being eccentric. She kept exotic animals in her home, including an alligator that drank champagne, and was known to sleep in a satin-lined coffin. Alphonse Mucha (also Alfons Maria Mucha) was a Czech artist who lived in Paris during the Art Nouveau period. He is probably best known for his theatrical posters, especially those featuring Sarah Bernhardt. Provenance: private Wabasha, Minnesota, USA collection; ex-Nancy and Dr. E.F.

Ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer künstlerischen Arbeit - und Voraussetzung für ihren weltweiten Ruhm - waren ausgedehnte Gastspielreisen. Mit ihrer eigenen Schauspieltruppe trat sie 1879 in London auf. 1880 folgte eine halbjährige Tournee durch 51 Städte der USA. 1881 gab sie Vorstellungen in Russland, Italien, Griechenland, Ungarn, der Schweiz, Dänemark, Belgien und den Niederlanden. Englands Königin Victoria und der russische Zar Alexander III. gehörten zu ihren Bewunderern... Sie galt als eine exzentrische, oft überspannte und launische Frau und hatte zahlreiche Liebhaber, darunter den Lebemann Charles Haas, den Schauspieler Jean Mounet-Sully sowie den Maler und Illustrator Gustave Doré. Bernhardt schuf sich durch ihre Exzentrik ein öffentliches Image: Sie stieg in einer Montgolfière auf in den Himmel über Frankreich und ließ Fotos verkaufen, auf denen zu sehen ist, wie sie in einem Sarg liegt und ihre Rollen studiert oder schläft. Ihre Wohnung beherbergte eine Menagerie heimischer und exotischer Tiere. Neben Romanen und Lustspielen schrieb sie 1907 ihre Memoiren (Mein Doppelleben). Damit inspirierte sie Marcel Proust, der in seinem Roman Auf der Suche nach der verlorenen Zeit die Figur der Schauspielerin La Berma nach Sarah Bernhardt gestaltete und die Hauptfigur Swann nach ihrem Liebhaber Charles Haas. Außer beim Schreiben zeigte sie auch in der Malerei und Bildhauerei Talent" (Wikipedia). D
