Mucha, who loses sight of her surroundings when she is absorbed in something, was very interested in the still life set up by Cézanne. Cézanne was so particular about his work that he would yell at the models even if they moved a little while posing. Mucha can’t help but notice the apple on the desk. Even though she knows she shouldn’t, her curiosity seems to get the better of her…

Good Night at Home

(W 27.3 x H 19 x D 2 cm,Oil Painting)

Mucha has loved her stuffed penguin since she was a little girl. They used to be about the same size, but now the penguin is like a little brother in comparison. She’s in the house, so she doesn’t have to worry about getting caught in the rain, but she can’t stay in the umbrella with him anymore.
