Spirit of Spring by Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939), in a Private Collection. A stunning, framed replica on artists’ grade canvas. In this gold-toned Art Nouveau allegory, Spring breezes in, barefoot, innocent, and with a bower of flowers to awaken the sleepy earth. Mucha, the great poster illustrator of his time, was also a revered painter prized for his use of organic inspiration and sensual curves. Our authentic stretched canvas replica captures the original painting’s texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand. Our imported, burnished gold-toned hardwood frame with acanthus leaf detail includes a solid brass museum plate etched with the title and the artist’s name. Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) Czech painter and decorative artist Alphonse Mucha more than anybody else is responsible for the Art Nouveau style, which prominently featured beautiful, robust young women in flowing robes, often surrounded by lush floral arrangements or halos around their heads, as in La Rousse. Mucha s Art Nouveau style was often imitated, as he was vastly talented in painting, sculpture, poster, magazine, calendar creation and architectural design. The Art Nouveau movement was often synonymous with Mucha s paintings and other artwork; marked by strong composition, sensuous curves inspired by nature and natural colors. While living in Paris, actress Sarah Bernhardt contracted Mucha to design posters and sets for her plays, which included La Trappistine. Throughout his life, Mucha attempted to distance himself from the Art Nouveau label, insisting that his work was not a specific style or form, but that his paintings, such as Spirit of Spring, came from within. Mucha paintings existed, in his opinion, to communicate a spiritual message, as he wished to pursue projects that would ennoble art and his country of birth. message and nothing more. Thus, Mucha s commercial success often frustrated him, but he remained a patriot of his Czech homeland and considered his triumph as for the Czech people as well as himself.

The authentic stretched canvas replica captures the original painting's texture, depth of color, and even subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand. The artwork is enclosed in a beautiful hardwood frame. Our framed art collection is filled with high-quality historical reproductions. Whether you choose a painstakingly replicated canvas or a contemporary piece, each is custom framed and ready to hang.
