This Art Nouveau lithograph was design by Alphonse Mucha - the artist who, more than any other, was responsible for the design movement called Art Nouveau. It was created specifically for the satirical French magazine called Cocorico, a publication that had a short (only 63 issues were printed) life but which provided timeless, classic creations, like this one. This illustration is the December calendar girl and the caption reads "La Gelée" which translates to "the frost."
