ARTISTS / Mucha, Alphonse

Czech 1860-1939
Mucha was a Czech painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and designer, who became one of the most celebrated artists of the Art Nouveau period. After working in Vienna and Munich, he moved to Paris in 1887, where he associated with the Nabis and the Symbolists. In the 1890s he produced posters for the actress Sarah Bernhardt, which made him internationally famous. In posters such as Gismonda (1895) and La Dame aux Camelias (1896), both commissioned by Sarah Bernhardt, his style is characterized by subtle patterns of undulating lines and decorative motifs drawn from Byzantine and Celtic art. In the early 20th century he spent some time teaching design in various American cities. Mucha was an ardent Czech nationalist, and in a cycle of vast paintings, glorified the history of the Slav people (1911-26). In 1911 he completed a series of murals in Prague Town Hall, and he designed the banknotes for the new Czech Republic. Today, his images are among the most recognized of the art nouveau posterists, by the general public.
