Spanning the entirety of Alphonse Mucha’s prolific career, this overview examines the Czech artist’s oeuvre―from posters, jewelry, interior decoration, theater and product design to painting, book illustration, sculpture and photography―across six themed sections that highlight the artist’s personality: “A Bohemian in Paris”; “A Picture-Maker for People”; “A Cosmopolitan”; “The Mystic”; “The Patriot”; and “The Artist-Philosopher.” Mucha rose to fame in fin-de-siècle Paris with his elegant theater posters for Sarah Bernhardt and his decorative panels featuring gracefully posed women. For these posters, Mucha created a distinctive style which became synonymous with the newly emerging decorative style of the time―Art Nouveau.
