Alphonse Mucha - Printemps


Alfons Mucha: 'Printemps' ('Spring'), 1900. 

"The poster craze of the 1890s, called the Belle Epoque, witnessed the rapid evolution and spread of the poster to all of Europe and America. By World War I, Art Nouveau had become a naive anachronism in a world of industrial complexities and destructive force."
