Alphonse Maria Mucha was born in Moravia in the Austrian Empire, now Czech Republic, in July 1860. He would go on to become a famed Czech art nouveau painter and decorative artist who is considered by many to be the father of the art nouveau movement. He was an active artist, creating new designs and paintings up until his death in 1939.
Mucha’s Rose design was the first of four panels in the so-called Flower Series, which debuted in 1898. Each of the panels in the Flower Series used a naturalistic style and minimal stylization. Two of the four watercolors in this collection debuted in 1897 at Mucha’s solo exhibit at the Salon des Cent, with the entire set not available until 1898.
The reverse of the 5 oz Proof Silver Mucha Collection Rose Round includes a popular portrait of the artist himself. Taken from a photo in which he is seated, you’ll see only his face in this portrait with engravings of his name, years of birth and death, and the round’s weight, purity, and metal content.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Proof Silver Mucha Collection Rose Round is the popular image of Rose. His depiction of Rose originally circulated as a water color with the personification of the rose flower in the form of a female figure. The entirety of the background on his original artwork featured a massive flowering rose vine that framed Rose’s figure as she stared straight ahead with a serene look.
Each of these 5 oz Proof Silver Mucha Collection Rose rounds have a proof finish, with a deeply, mirrored reflection on the background fields. Rounds in the Mucha Collection have edge lettering of their serial numbers, which correspond with the Certificate of Authenticity you receive with purchase.
