La Dame aux Camélias was considered a pivotal drama in Sarah Bernhardt's repertoire. In the play by Alexandre Dumas, she portrayed the tragic role of Camille, a dying courtesan who releases her lover from their promise of marriage. Alphonse Mucha's 1896 poster captures the essence of the tale: the sorrowful heroine leans against a balustrade, surrounded by silver stars, while a white camelia adorns her hair, symbolizing her character's plight. Another camelia, representing death, is held below, contrasting with thorny roses piercing hearts above. This poster became a favorite of Bernhardt's and was featured prominently during her American tours. See this image on a greeting card!

Mucha (1860-1939) was a visionary artist whose artistry and creativity shaped the Art Nouveau movement! Born in 1860 in Moravia, now the Czech Republic, Mucha's artistic journey took him from a struggling artist to an internationally renowned master of his craft. With his distinctive style characterized by intricate patterns, flowing lines, and ethereal female figures, Mucha's art played a significant role in shaping the visual aesthetics of the late-19th and early-20th centuries.
