 "Would you like to see the thing that I have put my soul into?" -Alphonse Mucha, January 1900

We are thrilled to be a part of Kickstarter's MAKE 100 project, where creators produce something very special in an extremely limited edition of only 100.

Since 1999, Century Guild has been one of the world's leading galleries in the realm where Symbolist Art, Expressionist Art, and Art Nouveau overlap, exhibiting important artifacts from 1880-1920 and rare works on paper by early 20th century artists including Gustav Klimt, Odilon Redon, Felicien Rops, Egon Schiele, and of course the Master of Art Nouveau, Alphonse Mucha.

Our next publication, Kickstarted last August and due in March 2017, was the wildly successful reprint of Mucha's lost 1899 masterpiece, Le Pater.

A love letter to the close of the 19th century and a message of optimism to the future, the artworks Mucha created for Le Pater are wildly mystical, fantastic in their scope and vision; perhaps no image is more powerful than the Lovecraftian scene depicted in the artwork titled "Lead Us Not Into Temptation But Deliver Us From Evil" where a spirit guides the blissful dreamer safely through the otherworldly ether while all manners of creature wait just beyond her Heavenly illumination.

For this special Make 100 endeavor, we have decided to herald the forthcoming release of Le Pater, and present our favorite work from the volume in a large-scale format in an extremely limited edition.

LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL

  • large 19.5" x 27.5" size
  • coated matte finish on heavyweight paper
  • limited edition of 100
  • blindstamped with Century Guild symbol
  • rare- and rarely seen- image

  • high quality offset printing

Should any copies of this print remain at the end of the campaign, we will retail them for $129.  These will not be reprinted.

$149-$169 Special Patronage Prints packages

Century Guild is a Los Angeles gallery and publisher founded by Thomas Negovan in 1999. Century Guild has presented Art Nouveau and Symbolism in numerous International Art and Antiques Fairs, including a major presence at the center of San Diego Comic Con where from 2004-2015 their pavilion introduced important artists of the 19th century to a new generation of art lovers.  The exhibitions at Century Guild have been reviewed by The L.A. Times, L.A.

We are strong believers in and supporters of the crowdfunding community, and the way that it encourages creations of exceptional quality by making direct connections within the creative community.
