Literature

cf. A. Bridges (ed), Alphonse Mucha, the complete graphic work, London 1980, p. 146, cat. no. p7, for an example of the original state of these panels, printed next to each other on a single sheet within an ornamental border (43 x 61 cm). The lithographes here offered for sale have been separately cut out without the caption with the seasons names, which are now lost. The cut-outs have assumably been framed separately circa 1900.
