Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939), “Repos de la Nuit”

1899. 37″ x 14″. Framed in No. 16 CV Chamfers (S-Corners) – 1” – 1-1/4”, in quartersawn white oak (Medieval Oak stain).

The fluid lines this greatest of poster artists employs inspired the fluid chamfer corner pattern on this otherwise simple frame. Apart from the wood, the other notable detail is the difference in width between the side members and the top and bottom members. We made the sides narrower than the top and bottom so as to be in keeping with the elongated proportions of the poster.
