La Dame aux Camélias - Vintage Offset Print After A. Mucha

Second Half of 20th Century

About

La Dame aux Camélias is a vintage colored offset from an original advertising affiche realized by Alfons Maria Mucha in 1896. Good conditions, except for some stains along the margins. This print is from the illustrated book "Französische plakate des 19. jahrhunderts" by Christina Thon realized for Staatlichen Museen in Berlin. Plate V. Edited by Gebr. Mann Verlag. Printed in Western Germany. This vintage poster was designed to promote Sarah Bernhardt in her role as Marguerite in the stage adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' The Lady of the Camellias at the Théâtre de la Renaissance, Paris, in 1896. The play was based on the novel published in 1848 by Dumas. The actress loved Alfons Mucha's romantic vision of her, and in 1895 she contracted him for six years to design posters and costumes for all her artistic productions. The scene represents the heroine leaning against a balustrade in front of a background of silver stars. In her hair there is a white camellia. Another camellia, symbolizing death, is offered by a hand at the bottom of the poster. By the 1890s, posters had taken center stage in the visual culture of the French capital. The Parisian billboards were the official posting places for advertising posters, becoming real ‘street galleries’, influencing the commercial success of both advertisers and artists designing the posters.
