Why We Love This

This composition of figures represents the soul led by God, who protects the human against the attacks of the whirling forces of evil. In a variation on the Temptation of St. Anthony, the forces of hell are presented in the form of demons, dragons and basilisks fulminating against the divine omnipotence. Ne nos inducas in tentation sed libera nos a malo (Do Not Let Us Succumb to Temptation and Deliver Us From Evil 1899) is a Heliogravure (from the artist’s original composition in India ink over pencil, enhanced with gouache) printed in black ink on wove paper bearing the “Pater” watermark. It bears the signature in the image at the lower right “Mucha." This is a fine impression from the edition of 510, the last of seven allegorical compositions illustrating the artist’s book Le Pater. Published by Henri Piazza, Paris; printed by F. Champenois, Paris. This is in excellent condition, printed on a sheet with full margins.
