Alphonse Mucha
Poster for JOB Cigarette Paper, 1896

1896

$32,500

About the Item

One of the most well-recognized images by Art Nouveau master painter and illustrator Alphonse Mucha. The lithograph measures 20.5 by 16.25 inches. It beautifully framed and ready to hang in an antique, gold leaf picture frame with Art Nouveau embellishment, measuring 32 by 27.5 inches. Originally printed and used as an advertising poster for JOB cigarette papers, this image established the iconic ‘Mucha woman’ characterized by her abundant swirls of hair rendered stylistically as an Art Nouveau motif. The composition shows the woman in profile, glamourous and, seated in front of a rose-colored backdrop of JOB monograms. She holds a lit cigarette with smoke rising to form an arabesque that intertwines with her golden-brown hair and JOB company logo in jade green. Her facial expression and posture indicate enjoyment and sensuality. The poster's border resembles a Bysantine mosaic with a zig-zag pattern providing the commercial image with an air of dignity and prestige. Publisher: F. Champenois, Paris
