The Burr McIntosh Monthly, 1907 (1907)

In his cover for the 1907 December issue of Burr McIntosh Monthly, Mucha captures the spiritual and magical atmosphere of Christmas.

Rendered in hatched strokes - relatively unusual for Mucha - the otherworldly female character is lit from below by candles sitting in a Christmas tree branch. She is framed by a decorative border of gold stars which adds an element of luxury to the composition.
