Documents decoratifs. Planches 61-62. [Silverware]
Paris, Librairie Central des Beaux Arts, 1901. Two plates. Folio (46 x 33 cm). Original prints.l A fine set of print from Alphonse Mucha's quintessential Art Nouveau book, "Documents décoratifs". Alfons "Alphonse" Maria Mucha (1860-1939) was a Czech decorative artist, who wanted to bring aesthetic values into arts and crafts. He invented the "Mucha Style" which soon became known as Art Nouveau. His work immediately became immensely popular and has remained very sought-after. This set of plates show two sides of this gifted artist: his ability to produce fine images in lithography, but also his practical design skills, in this case for cutlery and other silverware. Edges with minimal wear, otherwise fine. Very rare, especially in this excellent state.
