ALPHONSE MUCHA

Painter Alphonse Maria Mucha produced acute decorative works. He specialized in illustrations for advertisements and postcards, but also dabbled in paintings. The illustrative nature of his art introduced a style that would be called Art Nouveau, or New Art. Born in Moravia (now Czech Republic), Mucha started his artistic career in music school and carried it through to high school, even though drawing had always been his main hobby. He worked for a theatrical company painting sets and then at a design company. He finally received formal education at the Munich Academy of Fine arts. At a printshop, he encountered an opportunity to create a lithographic poster for a featured play. The poster became immensely successful – the commissioner recruited him into a 6-year contract that jumpstarted his career.
