At the end of the 19th century, Alphonse Mucha created a sensation throughout the streets of Paris through his posters representing the French actress Sarah Bernhardt. It was an overnight sensation and announced the new artistic style and its creator to the citizens of Paris, Art Nouveau. This brought fame and reputation to the poster artist.
However, Mucha’s talent was never confined to lithography. Shading the world with a colorful sensuality, Mucha’s art expresses itself as much on the monumental decorative panels of a living room as on small delicate China pieces.
The author enables us to discover all the richness and variety of this fin-de-siècle artist.
