    As a magazine cover, I would have thought I would find more information on this one done by Mucha, but so far I have found few examples online. Nor do I know why this same cover was used for the Le Monde Illustre Salons issue in 1900 (this one is from 1899). The three color ink that fades from green to yellow to purple is very nice, and I am wondering if this would serve to indicate that the lithograph was hand inked and hand pulled?

      I just realized the ink colors do not include purple, as the lowermost ink color is a dark green. I think in one of the photos I took, the lighting made it appear purple, and I had decided it was purple based off of that.
