The collection will be offered as part of the auction house's 20th Century Decorative Arts auction in New York, with the group of four separate lithographs - created by Mucha in 1896 - expected to sell for $60,000-80,000.

Mucha kick-started the familiar style of art nouveau on the release of his poster for Gismonda, a play by Victorien Sardou, in 1894. Four Seasons is one of his best loved works.

Mucha's The Stars, another set of four separate lithographs, sold for £91,250 ($145,179) at Christie's in April - a 52% increase on the £60,000 high estimate.
