Alphonse Mucha was an extraordinarily prolific and versatile artist who made his mark in the diverse fields of design - including posters, jewellery, interior decoration, theatre, packaging and product designs - as well as in painting, book illustration, sculpture and photography. He is one of the best-known Czech artists to wide international audiences today and rose to international fame in fin-de- siecle Paris with his elegant designs for theatre posters for Sarah Bernhardt, the most famous French actress of the time, and decorative panels (anneaux decoratifs ) featuring gracefully posed women. For those posters Mucha created a distinctive style - "le style Mucha" - characterised by harmonious compositions, sinuous forms, organic lines and a muted palette, which became synonymous with the newly emerging decorative style of the time - Art Nouveau. By the time of the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1900, Mucha had become a leading figure in this decorative art movement, who defined the look of the era. The catalogue explores the development of Mucha's career and overall achievements as a multifaceted and visionary artist. It is divided into six sections, highlighting Mucha's personality as Bohemian; picture maker for people; cosmopolitan; mystic; patriot and philosopher.
