Vintage Thursday - Alphonse Mucha - Art Nouveau

Hello everyone,

For the first Vintage Thursday of 2014 I thought I would share with you this Art Nouveau advert for French biscuits. Isn't it just beautiful? The advert is by Alfons Maria Mucha (also known as Alphonse Mucha) who was a Czech painter artist. He was born in 1860 and died in 1939. This lithograph is typical of Mucha's work as it depicts a beautiful female with long flowing hair and loosely draped Neo-Classical style robes/ dress.

Hope you enjoyed this advert as much I have.
