Born in Moravia in 1860, Alphonse Mucha moved to Paris in his 20s and went on to become one of the greatest exponents of the art nouveau style. Mucha was one of the most fascinating artistic personalities of the turn of the 20th century. He was not only a painter and graphic artist, but also took an interest in sculpture, jewelry, interior decorating, and utilitarian art.
Alfons Mucha died in Prague shortly before the invasion of Czechoslovakia by German troops on July 14, 1939. It was Mucha’s belief that through the creation of beautiful works of art the quality of life would be improved. He also believed that it was his duty as an artist to promote art for ordinary people. He was able to fulfill both of these objectives by means of his innovative concept of the mass-produced decorative panel.

  • Alphonse Maria Mucha (1860-1939) - Rêverie (1897) Colour lithograph 72.7 x 55.2 cm (detail)
    Like Zodiac, this lithograph was originally designed to serve as the 1898 Champenois company calendar. However, its immediate popularity led to its swift publication by the magazine La Plume as a decorative panel with the title Reverie (daydream).
    Mucha's design shows a dreamy-eyed young woman leafing through a book of decorative designs, possibly printers' samples. The prominent disk behind her is elaborately decorated with flowers and their stems forming a lace-like pattern.
  • Alfons Mucha was born in Southern Moravia on July 24, 1860. At the age of seventeen the artist left his home, to work as a painter of stage decorations at the Vienna "Ringtheater". When there was a fire at the theater, Mucha lost his job. He found new employment at the Vienese castle with Count Khuen, who became his patron and sent him to the Munich art academy a few years later. From there, Alfons Mucha went on to Paris in 1887 to continue his studies at the "Académie Julian" and then at the "Académie Colarossi".
    Due to a lack of financial support from Khuen, however, the student was forced to leave the academy and earn a living as an illustrator. During this time he produced a large number of sketches and drawings. These were studies for illustrations, which were later published in "Figaro illustré", "Petit Parisien illustré" and other journals. This early work and the prints for illustrated books like "L´éléfant blanc" by Judith Gauthier, at which Alfons Mucha worked during this time, still reflect the usual academic historic style of the time. By coincidence, thanks to an employer of Lemercier printers, Mucha was commissioned to design a poster for Sarah Bernhardt in 1894. This provided the launch pad for Mucha's future success and importance as an influential designer of French "Art Nouveau".

  • Ivy (1901)
    This panel recalls the poster Mucha designed for the dancer Lygie the same year and may well have been inspired by her.
    The decorative ivy foliage transforms the circular frame into an oblong.
    Both Ivy and its companion piece Laurel were later produced as decorative metal plates.
  • Ivy (1901)
    This panel recalls the poster Mucha designed for the dancer Lygie the same year and may well have been inspired by her.
    The decorative ivy foliage transforms the circular frame into an oblong.
    Both Ivy and its companion piece Laurel were later produced as decorative metal plates.
  • Laurel (1901)
    The position of the girl's head, with slightly lowered eyes, is the same as that of three of the ten glass panels Mucha designed the same year for the interior of the Boutique Fouquet.
    The leaf motif around the circular frame recalls the decorative frame of Zodiac (1896).
    This panel was later used as a calendar for the signage company Dewez.
  • Thistle from the Sands (1902)
    Mucha regularly holidayed in the coastal province of Brittany in northwestern France, and referred to this panel as La Bretonne.
    The plant carried by the Breton woman is in fact not a thistle but a sea holly which flourished in coastal areas.
    Heather from Coastal Cliffs (1902)
    Mucha regularly holidayed in the coastal province of Normandy in northwestern France, and referred to this panel as La Normande.
  • In 1906 Mucha gave a series of lectures at the Chicago Art Institute. While in Chicago, he and Maruška lodged with A.V. Černý, Professor of Music at the First Bohemian Conservatory. 'Papa' Černý had three daughters, all musically gifted. Mucha befriended the second daugter, seven year old Zdeňka, and promised to paint her portrait when she became a virtuoso concert artist. The portrait was painted when she was 16 and formed the basis of for this poster advertising a European tour which Zdeňka was to make in 1914-1915. The concert was cancelled when war broke out but the poster remains as a testament to the artist's friendship with the Černý family.

    2. 2. Mucha's first set of decorative panels (Seasons 1986) became one of his most popular series. The series proved very popular and it was followed by other popular series including The Flowers (1898), The Arts (1898), The Times of the Day (1899), The Precious Stones (1900) and The Moon and the Stars (1902). These panels illustrate all the typical qualities of the Mucha poster – the beautiful women with suggestive gestures, the decorative use of flowers and flowing hair, the subtle yet striking colours – all combine to create a compelling harmony of vision whose intention is to inspire and elevate the viewer.
