The Seasons / Silk. 1900.
Mucha's imaginative decorative panels representing the Four Seasons were so successful that he made at least three different sets—in 1896, 1897, and this one in 1900. This set, created at the same time as some of his most celebrated works for the 1900 Paris World's Fair, is arguably the most emotive and artistically imaginative of the three. Winter is secluded, hidden, in tones of white and brown; Spring steps forward with erotic directness of intent; Summer is warm, languid, and indolent; while Autumn, regal Autumn, sets her bounty out with Byzantine splendor. It is exceptionally rare to have all four of these panels together in a single lot; it is even rarer to find this full 1900 set printed on silk, which gives an added luster to the presentation. (4)
