Alphonse Mucha "Gismonda" Lithograph
Alphonse Mucha’s first and perhaps most famous poster, this iconic "Gismonda" lithograph would launch both the artist’s career and his very lucrative relationship with the famed actress Sarah Bernhardt, who is pictured here. The stunning image, executed in exacting, graphic linear detail and richly saturated tones, features Bernhardt, dressed lushly in elaborate robes against a backdrop of Byzantine faux-mosaic, in her eponymous role as Gismonda in the Greek melodrama of the same name.
