Alphonse Mucha "Monaco Monte-Carlo" Lithograph

$37,500

This "Monaco Monte-Carlo" lithograph by Alphonse Mucha, printed by F. Champenois in Paris, illustrates one of the most intricate color designs by the French Art Nouveau artist, with a kneeling young woman encircled by lilacs and hydrangeas and the bay of Monte Carlo in the background. The Byzantine intricate work, which seems largely architectural at first glance, is imbued with a softer, natural sensibility, with the utterly unique and sensitive approach to each stem and petal pictured.
