Fine Art Lithograph, hand pulled on the same vintage Maroni press; printed with the same process used by Mucha.
“In this series, Mucha began to see the decorative panel as painting with a meaning deeper than mere ornament. He connected his attraction to higher ideals, expressed through the stars, with his recurring theme of beautiful women personifying the stars as floating female figures . . . The dramatic quality of the movement of the individual figures is also remarkable, resembling the great baroque artistic heritage of Mucha’s country” (Mucha/Art Nouveau, p. 206).
This is a single lithograph from the famous series, representing the North Star.
