Mint, unused, never framed nor hung. This is a limited edition, hand pulled, fine art lithograph of Alphonse Mucha's, famous 1897 poster for P. Mucha's beautiful sea-worshipping nymph is surrounded by the indigenous flowers found along the southern coast of France. Monte Carlo's famous casino is visible along the Mediterranean coastal backdrop. This hand pulled lithograph preserves Mucha's classic work art.It was pulled on Rives BFK archival, acid free paper one colour at a time, from separate plates, in perfect registration for a limited edition of 300 pieces. The edition is numbered 1/300 to 300/300. There is also a museum edition of 35 (1/35 to 35/35). The chromist created this image by hand-drawing directly onto specially prepared surfaces, which were then chemically transferred onto lithographic plates, one plate for each color. The plates used to create this edition have been destroyed.
The lithograph was printed at S2 Atelier in New York City by master printers, under the supervision of Technical Director, Raymond Mazza. This piece was hand-drawn at the Mucha Foundation while viewing the original - so colors are a perfect match.
You almost cannot distinguish it from the original. Great care was taken to precisely recreate Mucha's original image created in 1897. This recreation bears the chop mark of both the Mucha Foundation and S2 Editions Atelier. The signature of the chromist is printed unobtrusively on this lithograph in order to distinguish this recreation from Mucha's original work.
Printing method: hand drawn plates are hand pulled, one colour at a time, in perfect registration on Rives BFK archival paper using the finest quality archival ink on an antique 1870s Marinoni Voirin lithography printing press - this is the same type of editioning printing press that was used to create the original posters over 100 years ago.
