One of the most beautiful Original Lithograph cover in colors from the famous Art Nouveau magazine "Au Quartier Latin" published in 1898. In all, Mucha designed four different covers for this artistic and literary magazine, which was published sporadically for the Mid-Lent season Carnival. Here he presents a parade of students at the feet of the Queen of the Carnival. She is wearing a crown and an elaborate cloak adorned with the coat of arms of Paris.
