This is one of the panels from Mucha’s first and perhaps most successful series of decorative panels, The Seasons, which he created in 1896. This and Summer are my favorites from the series.

I love the way he has counterbalanced the complementary reds and blue-greens throughout the composition, and set them off with muted versions in the background.
