Sarah Bernhardt and Mucha's fate: "The story goes that Mucha was toiling away correcting proofs at Lemercier’s printing works around Christmas 1894 when Bernhardt's agent inquired with an immediate need for a poster advertising her next production. Because all of Lemercier’s artists were on vacation, Mucha volunteered and in less than two weeks he created the poster for Gismonda." (www.codex99.com/...) | JV
