Mucha Nouveau The Arts Poetry Poster
In his book, ""Alphonse Mucha: The Complete Posters and Panels,"" Jack Rennert points out that ""When it comes to personifying abstract comments through beautiful women, Mucha's inventiveness never flags. Here is abundant proof in the . . . strikingly posed [muse] representing Poetry . . . The Mucha hair is in its glory . . . Mucha's other habitual indulgence, the circular halo, assumes in this case the shape of a crescent filled with secondary circles"" (p. 211).
