Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 11 3/8 x 24 1/4 in./28.8 x 61.6 cm Imp. F. Champenois, Paris After the 1900 World's Fair in Paris, this popular design by Mucha from 1899 was reprinted, noting that the product had won an award at the event. "To bring home the name of the product, Mucha created a discreet flirtation which embodies the 19th-century ideal of a romantic encounter: the girl demure and coy, the gentleman persuasive, the setting a fragrant garden. But he didn't forget the sponsor: The wrought-iron gate carries the name, and the girl's dress features a print pattern of the letters L-U, a subtle decorative reminder (Gold, p. 46).
