A Brush with Mucha

At the time (1896) Alphonse Mucha was creating this poster for Ruinart champagne, the wine’s exclusive U.S. importer was Samuel Montgomery Roosevelt of New York City, who in 1899 purchased the Richard De Zeng mansion, and renamed it Roosevelt Hall. It’s not exactly Mucha in Skaneateles, but it’s close enough for me.
