Alphonse Mucha - The Arts: Dance, 1898 Art Glass Panel

Item# YT8560


The Arts: Dance, 1898 Art Glass Panel by Alphonse Mucha is adapted from a color lithograph created as part of a series of illustrations called The Arts. For this series Mucha discarded traditional attributes such as musical instruments, paintbrushes and quills. Instead he emphasized the creative inspiration of natural beauty by giving each a circular backdrop featuring a motif from nature indicating a particular time of day. Dance, the most sensual of the series, features a single standing figure with her long auburn hair and falling leaves blown by an autumn morning breeze.

On this glass panel, enamel colors are individually applied to a single sheet of glass which is then kiln fired to permanently fuse the enamels to the glass. The glass panel is then framed with a copper patina metal came for an antique feel, and includes both a hanging chain and clear acrylic stand for desk or table display. Dimensions: Ht: 12”. W: 7.5”.

Alfons Maria Mucha (1860-1939), often known in English and French as Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist best known for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, and advertisements as well as designs for jewelry, home furnishings and theatre sets. This art glass panel has been developed in association with The Mucha Foundation, an independent, non-profit charity devoted to preserving and conserving the Mucha Trust Collection.
