ARTFINDER: Abstract Painitng The Golden Garden, ... by Maria Fondler-Grossbaum - This unusual wall sculpture is titled The Golden Garden. This piece has thick layers of paint in a variety of colorus, rhinestones, modeling and crackle past...:
L'Annee Qui Vient (1897) This chalk drawing was made in 1897 for a calendar planned for the year 1898. There are no records on the company who commissioned the calendar and no trace of a finalised printed edition. Nevertheless, Mucha's drawing itself became a great success. The calendar part of the design was removed and it was sold as a decorative panel in 1898 under the title "Evocation".
This design is a little bit more of a stretch for me. There are a lot of successful elements, such as the vines. My eye easily flows through the piece, however, I am confused once I reach the snakes. Wish there was a clearer understanding, yet love the concept overall.
