In typical style, they depict beautiful young women draped loosely in flowing robes, surrounded by flowers in nature and framed with decorative motifs.

Ranging from Morning Awakening (Eveil du Matin) to Rest at Night (Repos de Nuit), the four lithographs lead a Mucha offering at the Swann Galleries sale that also includes a poster for the 1921 Mucha Exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum (estimate $10,000 to $15,000), as well as advertising posters for the Salon des Cents from 1896 and Bières de la Meuse from 1897, each with an estimate of $8,000 to $12,000.
