About The Artist:

Alphonse Maria Mucha (1860-1899) was a struggling Czech artist living in Paris, France until 1895, when his poster “Gizmonda” (1894), designed for the iconic French actress Sarah Bernhardt, rocketed him to immediate fame and success. His “Style Mucha” had a significant impact on the French Art Nouveau movement.

The character of Lorenzaccio, in the play by Alfred de Musset, is based on Lorenzo the Magnificent (1449-1492), the most powerful of the Medicis, who ruled the city-state of Florence. In the play, Lorenzaccio struggles desperately to save Florence, which had grown rich during his reign, from the grip of a power-hungry conqueror. Mucha represents this tyranny by a dragon menacing the city coat of arms and portrays Lorenzaccio pondering the course of his action. Sarah Bernhardt adapted the play, first written in 1863, and the new version, for which this poster was produced, opened December 3, 1896. Never afraid to tackle a male role, Bernhardt made Lorenzaccio into one of the classic roles of her repertoire.
