Lengthy letter featuring a stunning classic nude study
Description                           Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000          

Influential Czech artist (1860–1939) best remembered for his stylized Art Nouveau depictions of beautiful women. ALS in Czech, signed “Mucha,” two pages on two adjoining sheets, 5.75 x 8, October 15, 1918. In part (translated): "I confirm that I have received what you have sent and thank you from the bottom of my heart, also my wife wants to thank you. My wife also asks you if we should send some bags for the potatoes. We will be in Zbiroh by the end of the month. I will depart sooner and my family later. We will stay in Prague during winter. We just hope that Black Death won’t show the teeth at us. In that case we would prefer to stay in Zbiroh instead of Prague. But I hope I will arrive in Prague before the end of the month and hope we will meet somewhere. Maybe at our place or yours. Anyway I am really looking forward to seeing you.” On the opposite side of the paper, Mucha draws a striking pencil sketch of a nude woman stretching. In fine condition. A letter of this length would be quite desirable even without the artwork, and Mucha’s addition of this detail sketch makes it all the more wonderful. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
