The Arts. 1898.
A rare appearance of Mucha's full Arts quartet: Music, with her songbirds on a branch and the winds of emotion through her skirts; Dance, a blush of toe-point passion and sweeping precision; Painting, with concentric rainbows emanating from a flower, plucked; and Poetry, crowned with laurels, meditating on the poplars upon Mount Olympus. "Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow," wrote Kurt Vonnegut. The portfolio cover is included. (4)
