Friday art inspiration: Portrait of Josephine Crane Bradley as Slavia (1908). To mark the marriage of his daughter Josephine to Harold C. Bradley, Charles Richard Crane commissioned Mucha to paint a portrait of Josephine as the Slav goddess, Slavia. The portrait was to be incorporated into the interior decoration of a new house that Crane was building for the newlyweds. Ten years later, when Mucha was commissioned to design banknotes for the newly founded Czechoslovakia, he used this portrait as the main motif on the 100 crown note.

rt Nouveau inspiration: F. Champenois Imprimeur-Éditeur, lithograph, 1897, by Alphonse Mucha. Alphonse Mucha was born in 1860 and his work includes some of the finest and best known examples of the Art Nouveau style in existence. Mucha was born in Ivanice in Moravia, then a part of what was the Austro-Hungarian empire. The artist's work epitomises the Art Nouveau style perhaps more solidly than any other artist’s. In Reverie the bold white and green swirling patterns that top and frame the picture are archetypically redolent of botanical growth in form, a staple of the art nouveau style. The colours also reflect those of nature and the whole piece is a shining example of Mucha’s work and the art nouveau movement. Mucha's work has been popular for over a century and it has been used in enormous proliferation in advertising, book illustration and other media.
