With this highly successful poster, Mucha took his place in the celebrated Salon des Cent.
His first exhibition was held under the auspices of the magazine "La Plume", whose publisher,
Leon Deschamps, discovered this poster motif- with its "half-naked woman, her head encircled,
halo-like, by golden hair cascading in arabesques" - almost by chance. His advice to Mucha: "Execute this design just as it is, and you will have created the masterpiece of the illustrated decorative poster."
All of our prints are beautifully rendered on 13 by 19 professional heavyweight matte photo paper. All images are printed exactly as shown to order. Old photos and other vintage media sometimes have a bit of blur which we are careful to keep, as we do with the creases in film posters or antique maps so that your print will still carry with it the true character of the original. All prints are carefully rolled for shipping and safely inserted in a high quality shipping tube. When purchased with a frame, we frame the print for you and it is shipped in a high quality shipping box especially designed for frames to ensure it gets to you in mint condition.
