Alphonse Mucha Exhibition

Today is the birthday of Alphonse Mucha, born 1860.  So it seemed a fitting time to promote an exhibition of his work.

A Czech-born artist he is recognised as one of the most prominent artists of the Art Nouveau movement.  Amongst his work are iconic creations  including Gismonda; the artist’s first poster design for the actress Sarah Bernhardt.

Liverpool’s Walker Art Gallery are currently staging a major exhibition, entitled Alphonse Mucha: In Quest of Beauty.   The touring exhibition has been staged by the Mucha Foundation and explores his work  around the theme of beauty – the core principle underlying his artistic philosophy.

The exhibition runs from 16th June to 29th October and whilst I haven’t attended this I was lucky enough to see his work at a gallery in Prague a few years back.
