Les toits de Paris 1906
Albert Marquet (27 March 1875 – 14 June 1947) was a French painter, associated with the Fauvist movement. He initially became one of the Fauve painters and a lifelong friend of Henri Matisse. Marquet subsequently painted in a more naturalistic style, primarily landscapes, but also several portraits and, between 1910 and 1914, several female nude paintings.
Sara Bernhardt played Mélissinde in Edmon Rostand’s play La Princesse lointaine at the Théâtre de la Renaissance. Mucha created the poster for a special banquet in 1896. It was reproduced in La Plume magazine, the Edition d’Art, and as a postcard for the department store La Belle Jardinière.
