  • About The Artist

      Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939)
      Czech painter and decorative artist Alphonse Mucha more than anybody else is responsible for the Art Nouveau style which prominently featured beautiful robust young women in flowing robes often surrounded by lush floral arrangements or halos around their heads as in La Rousse. Mucha's Art Nouveau style was often imitated as he was vastly talented in painting sculpture poster magazine calendar creation and architectural design.

      The Art Nouveau movement was often synonymous with Mucha's paintings and other artwork; marked by strong composition sensuous curves inspired by nature and natural colors. While living in Paris actress Sarah Bernhardt contracted Mucha to design posters and sets for her plays which included La Trappistine.

      Throughout his life Mucha attempted to distance himself from the Art Nouveau label insisting that his work was not a specific style or form but that his paintings such as Spirit of Spring came from within. Mucha paintings existed in his opinion to communicate a spiritual message as he wished to pursue projects that would ennoble art and his country of birth. message and nothing more. Thus Mucha s commercial success often frustrated him but he remained a patriot of his Czech homeland and considered his triumph as for the Czech people as well as himself.
