More About this Item


Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: Each: 7 1/2 x 24 5/8 in./19 x 62.5 cm Imp. F. Champenois, Paris (not shown) In subdued pastels, this "quartet of barefoot young ladies represents the different times of the day. The borders are decorated in identical patterns ... and the crisscross areas at the top have different floral panels. Each girl appears in an outdoor setting, with slender trees or tall flowers emphasizing her slim figure ... The borders are worked out in such an exquisite pattern that each picture appears to be mounted in an elaborate frame of its own, or else seen through a decorated window. Quite possibly Mucha's whole concept for the series was that of gothic stained-glass windows” (Rennert/Weill, p. 232). This is the smaller format version of the set with the names of each time featured in decorative boxes.
