Alphonse Mucha

Eye of Providence

Alfons Mucha [moo-kah] (1860 – 1939) was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist, best known for his distinct style and his images of women. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, and postcards. At the time of his death, Mucha’s style was considered outdated. Only recently has a Mucha museum appeared in Prague, run by his grandson, John Mucha.

Mucha’s work has continued to experience periodic revivals of interest for illustrators and artists. Interest in Mucha’s distinctive style experienced a strong revival in the 1960s (with a general interest in Art Nouveau) and is particularly evident in the psychedelic posters of ‘Hapshash and the Coloured Coat,’ the collective name for two British artists, Michael English and Nigel Waymouth.

  1. come si chiama la seconda immagine????

  2. “Absinthe Robette” is not a Mucha. It’s a Henri Privat-Livemont. See signature bottom right. I suggest replacing it with “Music” from Mucha’s “Arts” series – one of my favorites. See http://www.museumsyndicate.com/artist.php?artist=192&start=50

  3. It says what it says on it, Mucha
