More About this Item

Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 16 1/2 x 42 1/4 in./42 x 107.2 cm Ustavy Unie, Praze This gorgeous design for an Agricultural-Industrial and Ethnographic Fair "was conceived during Mucha's first triumphal return to his home country after many years of study and commercial success abroad ... As a fervent patriot who had become a celebrity, Mucha was eager to use the opportunity to do some work for his homeland ... [this poster] shows him in top form, with Art Nouveau elements and curves rampant throughout the design. There are daisies, which symbolize Moravia to him the way the field poppy symbolizes northern France. Another touch of home are the two swallows at upper corners building their nests. And the heraldic crest of Moravia, a checkered eagle, fills the usual Mucha halo behind the girl” (Rennert/Weill, p. 302).
