This was Mucha's first set of decorative panels and it became one of his most popular series. It was so popular that Mucha was asked by Champenois to produce at least two more sets based on the same theme in 1897 and 1900. Designs for another two sets also exist.
Mucha personifies Spring as a fair-haired figure in a translucent white dress standing under a blossoming tree. The blossom is echoed in the white flowers in her hair. She holds a lyre fashioned from a branch on which three small birds sit.
