Alphonse Mucha: An Insight into the Artist

Alphonse Mucha: An Insight into the Artist is a major retrospective featuring over 240 works, including many that have never been shown in Japan before, alongside a wide range of oil paintings, studies, sketches, jewellery and posters from the Mucha family collection.

The exhibition will explore the artistic vision and ideals behind Mucha's works. Through his own words and works, visitors will gain an insight into his creative process, his ambitions and his achievements.

The exhibition will be organised in six sections representing important themes or phases in his career:

Mucha the Czech
Sarah Bernhardt & the Theatre World
Le Style Mucha & Art Nouveau
The Message of Beauty
Paris 1900
Visions for Humanity

Rare works such as a satin-silk edition of The Arts series, comprised of 4-colour lithographs: Dance, Painting, Poetry and Music will feature in the show.

This exhibition will be a great opportunity for all Mucha fans and art lovers to deepen their understanding of Mucha and his inner world.
