Les Saisons: Ete, Printemps, Automne, Hiver

Alphonse Mucha
Les Saisons: Ete, Printemps, Automne, Hiver
lithograph
1896

An original Alphonse Mucha lithograph print.

1896

The set of four original lithographs printed in colors on wove paper

Each plate signed on the stone lower left or right Mucha.

Each is superb impression of the Rennert/Weill’s original published version, before the addition of any text to the stones (there were five variants which followed the original version), from the edition published, printed and distributed by F. Champenois, Paris, 1896.

Catalog: Rennert/Weill 18; Bridges P3-P6.

39 3/8 x 20 1/8 inches

One of Mucha’s most endearing and enduring sets. The idea of personifying the four seasons was nothing new – the printer Champenois had done it before with other artist’s – but Mucha breathed so much more life into his project that this became one of the best selling sets of decorative panels produced during his entire career.
