A New Year and a New Start
The theme for “Looking Close… on Friday” Friday 8th of January is “calendar”, so I decided that before I wrote on my beloved Alphonse Mucha wall calendar that I buy every year, I would photograph a corner of it. The Alphonse Mucha image you see in the corner closest to us is a detail of “Têtes Byzantines – Blonde” (1897) which appears in my calendar on the month of September: my birthday month.
I wish all my Flickr friends and followers a brighter and happier New Year than the one we have left behind.
Alfons Maria Mucha (1860 – 1939), known internationally as Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech painter, illustrator and graphic artist, living in Paris during the Art Nouveau period, best known for his distinctly stylized and decorative theatrical posters, particularly those of Sarah Bernhardt.
