The Garden Walk - J.C. Leyendecker, 1904

Leyendecker drew inspiration from Mucha and would himself later influence Rockwell.  Such a medley of styles :)

Slav Epic by Alphonse Mucha, 1928
"This poster was prepared by Mucha for the         first exhibition of the complete Slav Epic cycle, 20 huge paintings, and         its official transfer to the City of Prague as a donation by the artist.         The exhibition took place between September 23 and October 31, 1928,         coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the Czechoslovak Republic which         was also being created at this time. For the top half of the poster,         Mucha took a portion of one of the pictures that comprised the Slav         Epic, &#8216;An Oath Under the Slav Linden Tree&#8217;. The mythical figure in the         background is Svantovit, the supreme god in Slav mythology, who had         three faces representing the past, the present and the future. His         emblems were a sword, which he is holding in his right hand, and a horn         (used as a drinking cup)." (From http://www.ceruttimiller.com/mucha%20slav%20epic%20only.htm)
The Slav Epic is Mucha&#8217;s unfinished masterpiece and shows off his other artistic styles.

The Women of Byzantium

Byzantine Head: The Blonde, Alphonse Mucha, 1897.

Byzantine Head: The Brunette, Alphonse Much, 1897

I don’t know the story behind the Byzantine Heads, but I’d like to think they are a tribute to badass Byzantine empresses like Theodora and Irene.  Below is a mosaic of Theodora (d. 548) participating in a religous service from the Basilica of San Vitale.
