The Alphonse Mucha collection celebrates some of the greatest works he completed during his lifetime. Mucha was active during the art nouveau movement between 1890 and 1910, a time period generally viewed as the height of that movement. Most importantly though, his works featuring beautiful women in various poses are considered catalysts for the movement as a whole.
Muchas Rose design was the first of four panels in the so-called Flower Series, which debuted in 1898. Each of the panels in the Flower Series used a naturalistic style and minimal stylization. Two of the four watercolors in this collection debuted in 1897 at Muchas solo exhibit at the Salon des Cent, with the entire set not available until 1898.
On the reverse of the 5 oz Proof Colorized Mucha Collection Rose Silver Round includes a popular portrait of the artist himself. Taken from a photo in which he is seated, youll see only his face in this portrait with engravings of his name, years of birth and death, and the rounds weight, purity, and metal content.
The obverse of the 5 oz Proof Colorized Mucha Collection Rose Silver Round features the image of Rose. The image of Rose was initially completed as a watercolor made to depict her figure as the personification of the rose flower. This design depicts Rose as a beautiful woman with roses adorning her upswept hair.
Each 5 oz Proof Colorized Mucha Collection Rose Silver round has a proof finish, with a deeply mirrored reflection on the background fields and brilliant colorization of the Rose imagery. Rounds in the Mucha Collection have edge lettering of their serial numbers, which correspond with the Certificate of Authenticity you receive with purchase.
