Czech artist Alphonse Mucha not only painted, but also designed theater posters, advertising canvases. His paintings served as an example for fashion designers to create costumes for wealthy segments of the population. He was considered the best modernist of his time.
All canvases of this artist are connected by one individuality – this is the head of a lady, which is surrounded by luxury, brightness, and diversity. His paintings are striking in their unusual, colorful, unconventional thinking. They breathe theatrical performances, the game, well-executed poster.
One of the famous series of the famous artist is the seasons. Winter. Alphonse Mucha presents winter in the form of a charming woman of Slavic nature. She has bright subtle facial features, striking in its singularity. It seems that this woman, wrapped in a light-colored veil, looks at Coca – not a light, driven by the only thought of warmth.
The background of the painting is made in warm colors, but despite this, the presence of cold is felt, the lack of heat. A woman tries to hide from the cold in a blanket, but it does not bring her the expected warmth. One leg of the beauty is ajar. It can be seen that she walks barefoot on the snow lying at her foot.
The artist depicted a woman sitting on the arm of a tree, which seemed to wrap her from frost and wind. She pressed her hands, holding the leaves, presented to her by a tree, to her mouth, trying to keep warm. A tree looks like a hand that gives its guest warmth, comfort and support. On the branches of the tree lies aerial snow.
It seems that only this tree sympathizes with a stranger in need of warmth, kindness, comfort, love. It seems that the picture is made in warm colors, but it blows from her cold, and I want to take refuge with a warm blanket and hide in a cozy house with a cup of hot tea. Alphonse Mucha thus wanted to show that with the external warmth of a relationship, they are often deceptive.
