Mucha Nouveau The Arts Painting Poster
In his book, ""Alphonse Mucha: The Complete Posters and Panels"", Jack Rennert comments that ""When it comes to personifying abstract comments through beautiful women, Mucha's inventiveness never flags. Here is abundant proof in [the muse] representing . . . Painting. Mucha's . . . circular halo [is] filled with secondary circles, and the goddess of Painting adds yet another set of rainbow-like bands"" (p. 211).
