Brussels, BelgiumLive Auction
Description: 1900 PARIS. Bon de Participation de F20. Serie A. black, blue. No 235126. Superb design by Alphonse Mucha, of 'The Christian Faith Shining on the Darkness of Paganism', with an angel in front of St. Peter’s. She looks just like a pop singer waiting to start singing into her microphone - an early Madonna? Large format, with coupons. 400 of Mucha's works were published in the magazine La Plume. The painting on this share appears in that journal. There is therefore no doubt that it is really by Mucha, even if the style is not quite what we expect of this artist. Rare and wanted certificate.
