Description

English

This short story, published in Czech and written by French author Robert de Flers, contains beautiful examples of Alphonse Mucha's (1860-1939) distinct Art Nouveau designs. Mucha's artwork is characterised by flowing, harmonious natural forms, a pastel colour palate, and the use of flowers, female figures and other repetitive motifs such as stars.

Art Nouveau was an international arts movement that flourished between 1890–1910. It is regarded as an important point of transition between the 19th century and 20th century Modernism.
