Original Lithograph by Alphonse Mucha for 1900 Issue of Cocorico French Art Nouveau Magazine

Cocorico was a French magazine produced by the artist Paul-Émile Boutigny and featured many artists of the Art Nouveau movement including Alphonse Mucha and Théophile Steinlen. The magazine had 63 issues.
Each cover had an amazing lithograph printed cover on a heavy stock paper, and many of the covers were pieces done soiling for the magazine.
The Art Nouveau movement was one of amazing creativity that the core Austrian artists where supportive and highly productive.

Paul Émile Boutigny created the satirical magazine Cocorico in France in 1898. An artist himself, he used his magazine to promote the infant art movement of Art Nouveau and the artist involved. Alphonse Mucha, one of the most recognizable artist of the movement did this cover in December of 1900. As well as a few covers, he also added reproductions of his works to the magazine.
