Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 14 1/4 x 23 in./362. x 58.5 cm (each) Imp. F. Champenois, Paris (not shown) "When it comes to personifying abstract concepts through beautiful women, Mucha's inventiveness never flags. Here is abundant proof in the four strikingly posed muses representing Poetry, Dance, Painting and Music. The Mucha hair is in its glory, especially in the brunette representing the uninhibited movement of the dance. Mucha's other habitual indulgence, the circular halo, assumes in this case the shape of a crescent filled with secondary circles, and the goddess of Painting adds yet another set of rainbow-like bands." (Rennert/Weill, p. 211). (great art nouveau)
