Alphonse (Alfons) Mucha (1860 – 1939) was a Czech painter and decorative artist born in 1860 born in the town of Ivančice, Moravia. He is best known for his luxurious poster and product designs, which encapsulate the Art Nouveau style. Contemporary interest in his work was revived in 1980 after an exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris.

This is part 5 of a 12-part post on the works of Alphonse Mucha. For biographical notes on Mucha see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 - 4 also. Part 6 tomorrow.

  1. Thank you for this huge work and for sharing it. Plenty of rare, unknown and interresting items, I Like the studies very much. You might be intererested by this other Mucha's early work as illustrator, for "L'Aventure de Roland" a book for children. (Here, Roland is not the famous knight of Charlemagne's conquests, but it's a dog, that follows and protects three Napoleon's soldiers in mission to deliver an important letter.) Beautiful illustrations. Thank you for your share.
