About This Piece
The Art
This poster, produced for the Theatre De La Renaissance theatrical company in Paris in 1896, promotes La Dame Aux Camelias, a play adapted (and sanitized) as Camille in the English-speaking world. Sarah Bernhardt was one of the most popular actresses to portray Marguerite Gautier, the titular Lady of the Camellias depicted in the artwork. The curved, flowing lines, inspired by the plants and the natural fall of Marguerite's robes but carried out down to the architecture of her balcony, are characteristic of the Art Nouveau style for which Czech-born artist Alphonse Mucha is most famous.

This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.

The Artist
Alphonse Mucha (1860 – 1939) was a Czechoslovakian Art Nouveau artist who pioneered a sensuous, ornate style replete in stained glass colors, elaborately curving lines and ethereal women. Realizing that living people created the art he admired in churches, Mucha became inspired to paint. Moving to Paris, he was initially the archetypical starving artist, until Sarah Bernhardt asked him to create a poster for the play, “Gismonda.” The life-size poster, which was the antithesis of artistic trends of the day, was a sensation. Bernhardt signed him to a six-year contract, and he became a household name. Mucha’s style experienced an enthusiastic revival in the 1960s, particularly in psychedelic posters.
