Alphonse Mucha Art Nouveau Master
Alphonse Mucha was a Czechoslovakian artist who lived from 1860 until his death in 1939. He was known mostly for his painting, but had a number of other talents including lithography, fine jewelry design, sculpting and instruction.
The principle style of painting which Alphonse Marie Mucha developed and became linked with was Art Nouveau, the French term for ‘new art’ which was an artistic style and form of depicting art from around the 1880’s up to 1910. The characteristic style of Art Noveau placed emphasis on natural curved and linear designs and floral emblems.
