The Flowers, The Iris

by Mucha
YEAR:
1898
SIZE:
43 x 19 inches (109 x 48 cm)
REFERENCE NUMBER:
4160

DESCRIPTION:

“One of the fundamental premises of art nouveau was to look for inspiration in nature, and in THE FLOWERS set Mucha produced one of the best arguments for it. The four ethereal sprites represent The Lily, The Iris [shown here], The Rose, and The Carnation, respectively, and it is a clear case of Beauty celebrating beauty in each instance. By using only soft pastels and harmonious composition, Mucha imbued each scene with a sense of tranquility and quiet enjoyment” (Lendl/Paris, pp. 86-87). This delicate beauty in a clinging dress is surrounded by irises in the gentlest shades of violet. The voluptuous shapes of the blooms are a good match for her own.
