Beyond the iconic Art Nouveau posters that brought him international fame in fin-de-siècle Paris, Alphonse Mucha was an extraordinarily versatile artist—at once a painter, sculptor, photographer, and designer in a wide range of media, as well as a mystic, patriot and philosopher.
Published in collaboration with the Mucha Foundation, this catalogue includes Mucha’s celebrated posters of Sarah Bernhardt, while also covering the lesser-known aspects of his output that profoundly influenced his decorative works: drawings, paintings, pastels, jewellery, and photographs that reveal the visionary and often somber depths of Mucha’s imagination.
