At this auspicious time, the turn of a century, Mucha wanted to deliver to future generations his reflections upon human life and man’s place in the universe. He wished to present the way that leads man to a gradual ascent to the divine ideal. He determined to fulfill these goals in his own version of the Lord’s Prayer” (Mucha/Art Nouveau, p. 233). The Czech version of the book, published by Nakladatel Bedrich Koci, Prague, consists of a series of seven drawings. The seven verses of the prayer are each presented with three illustrations by Mucha, plus color title page and a tissue overlay that translates the text into Czech. Mucha felt that this was his supreme achievement as an illustrator, and to see this rare portfolio is to know it: The images abound in Byzantine symbolism, executed and decorated in the very best art nouveau style.
