The Mucha Foundation is thrilled to have this opportunity to introduce the work of Alphonse Mucha to a new country and to a new continent.
Alphonse Mucha: The Legacy of Art Nouveau brings together around 100 works, including posters, drawings, paintings, prints, objects, books and photographs. The show will explore Mucha's work and the influence it has had on subsequent generations.
The show is divided into four thematic sections. The first two parts hightlight Mucha's contribution to Art Nouveau in Paris. The third section explores how his art developed after his return to the Czech lands, which culminated in his late masterpiece, The Slav Epic. In the final section, the exhibition looks at the legacy of Mucha's style through examples of works by graphic artists from the 1960s to the present day.
