Original Signed Alphonse Mucha 'Byzantine Blonde' French Postcard 1896.
With the full title 'Tete Byzantine-Blonde' comes this original Art Nouveau issue signed French postcard by the master of the genre..Alphonse Maria Mucha (1860-1939).
It features one of his favourite blonde models in profile. Her long golden hair is decorated with feathers, jewels and an amazing Byzntine style rosette.
It is one of his earliest postcards as seen by the rounded corners and un-divided back.
Postally un-used and clean verso it has one small corner loss lower right and is signed centre right.
With some age related discoloration it is a very rare postcard in good Antique condition.
Alphonse Mucha is my all time favourite artist from the Art Nouveau era and I have several other original postcards by him listed..see NN245, NN246, NN467, NN468, NN487, NN524, NN539, NN576.
