A Touch of Art Nouveau

Late Nineteenth Century artist Alphonse Mucha has always been one of my favorites.  His Art Nouveau posters and commercial art from 1895 through 1912 has always been high on my list.

I wanted to try to emulate his style a bit so I combined elements of the composition of Mucha's 1897 work Fruit with an image of a good friend of mine.

I asked my friend what she should be holding, as I didn't really want to just use fruit like in Mucha's piece.  She suggested a bunny.  I think it works.

The caption reads, "Beaute Intemporelle," French for "Timeless Beauty."  I used French as the majority of Mucha's work was done in Paris.  Seemed appropriate.
