The Four Seasons, c. 1907-08

Art nouveau stained glass window from the Smith Museum of Stained Glass at Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois. One of a set representing the four seasons; this is Winter. The designer is not known with certainty, but it is believed that Alphonse Mucha designed the four panels

Mucha's Four Seasons - Autumn



---------------------stained glass of St. Vitus' Cathedral--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A stained glass by Alphonse Mucha in the St. Vitus’ cathedral, Hradčany, Prague, September 27, 2008
The stained glass is made of painted instead of chemically coloured glass, which is usually used. That’s why places with fading colours can be spotted.

The window is from 1931 and is in St Vitus Cathedral in Prague, Czech Republic.

Does anyone know if there was ever a Mucha print/piece of a man and woman embracing or something similar?

I can't think of a Mucha piece offhand but one of my favorites with this subject matter is by William Bouguereau called the Abduction of Psyche. Not really art nouveau but it's still lovely :)

This set is amazing btw. Thanks to the original poster for collecting all these large images into one place!
