        ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) [LE MOIS / NOVEMBER.] Pen and ink sketch. Circa 1899.
        10x5 3/4 inches, 25 1/2x14 1/2 cm.
        Condition A- / B+: creases and slight foxing in image; darkening at edges beneath mat. Hand-signed by the artist in ink. Thin paper. Matted and framed.
        Mucha designed this ornamental template for Le Mois magazine's cover, which remained the cover image for its first twelve issues, varying only the edition text and central medallion based on the month of publication. Those same central images, each a visual representation of a calendar month, were issued as postcards, appearing as medallions without the decorative border.
