More About this Item


Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 38 1/2 x 58 1/4 in./97.7 x 148.2 cm Imp. F. Champenois, Paris "In both of Mucha's posters for Job cigarette papers ... he gives us women sensually involved in the act of smoking. Here, the figure is full-length, her abandoned hair an echo of the pale fabric volumes of her gown. As she watches the lazy waft of smoke, even her toes curl deliciously in pleasure. The artist's meticulous craftsmanship can be seen in such details as the gown's clasp (of Mucha's own design), and in the way he worked the product name into the background pattern” (Gold, p. 2). (great art nouveau)
