Mistress of Spring Bonded Marble Statue
Item#EU5494
By artist Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939)

Usher in your own endless spring with this amazingly detailed sculpture in the ornate Art Nouveau style. Originally done as an advertising poster by Czech painter and decorative artist Alphonse Mucha, our Basil Street Gallery artists have translated each lock of flowing hair and soft curve of his long-limbed beauty into three dimensions. Everything from this springtime maiden's gossamer gown to the oversized crocuses at her feet have materialized as a dimensional masterpiece cast in bonded marble resin. Even the details are painstakingly hand polished to bring out the sparkling stone luster and make this an instant heirloom for home or gallery!

    Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939)




Czech painter and decorative artist Alphonse Mucha, is responsible for the Art Nouveau style, which prominently featured beautiful, robust young women in flowing robes, often surrounded by lush floral arrangements or halos around their heads, as in La Rousse. Mucha's Art Nouveau style was often imitated, as he was vastly talented in painting, sculpture, poster, magazine, calendar creation and architectural design.

The Art Nouveau movement was often synonymous with Mucha's paintings and other artwork; marked by strong composition, sensuous curves inspired by nature and natural colors. Throughout his life, Mucha attempted to distance himself from the Art Nouveau label, insisting that his work was not a specific style or form, but that his paintings, such as Spirit of Spring, came from within. Thus, Mucha's commercial success often frustrated him, but he remained a patriot of his Czech homeland and considered his triumph as for the Czech people as well as himself.
