About The Artist:

This poster is an advertisement for the cigarette paper manufacturer Joseph Bardou Company, known as "JOB". The name comes from the initials of Jean Bardou, who invented a booklet of rolling papers made from rice paper. This poster established the iconic image of the "Mucha Woman", with her serpentine swirls of luxuriously draped hair and sensual gaze. Women did not smoke at the turn of the 20th century. This alluring, somewhat risqué poster, with the female subject holding a lit cigarette, gives the product a sense of illicit glamour.
