Jarmila Mucha Plocková finds an important source of motives in her grand-father’s renowned posters and decorative panneaux. Mucha fascinated Paris in the beginning of 1895 with his poster for the play Gismonda, with the famous actress Sarah Bernhardt in the title role. The poster differed from usual posters of those days in its subdued mosaic of colours, the beauty of its contour lines and the typically elongated format. Mucha brilliantly succeeded in expressing a woman’s mysterious beauty and charisma, and in combining the Slavic mellowness with Parisian esprit.
Pendant – inspired by Mucha’s Iris panneaux.
Ring – inspired by the drawing on the poster Medea by A. Mucha, 1898.
