Alphonse Mucha Laurel Art Nouveau iPhone 5 Case
Le Laurier (Laurel), 1901 by Alphonse Mucha. Original piece: colour lithograph, 53 x 39.5 cm (20.9" x 15.6"). Like its companion piece Le Lierre (Ivy), the wonderful trompe l'oeil effect gives this piece an earthy, garden feel and a tactile appeal. You want to actually reach out and feel the texture of the tile mosaics. The Arts and Crafts Movement influence is stronger and the palette more restrained in these two pieces than in his other works, yet that lyrical Mucha magic is as potent as ever. I love the the marvellous greens against the rich browns accented with dusty lilac and goldenrod.
