"Alfons Mucha" overview
2017 celebrates the 60th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Japan and the Czech Republic. Alfons Mucha (1860-1939) was born in Moravia (now part of the Czech Republic). He was a prolific artist of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and a key figure in the Art Nouveau movement. His unique style influenced an entire generation of painters, graphic artists, and designers.
Part of Mucha’s appeal was his adaptability across artistic mediums. He produced a flurry of paintings, posters, advertisements and book illustrations, as well as designs for jewelry, carpets, wallpaper, and theatre sets in what was termed initially “The Mucha Style”, but became known as Art Nouveau.
Mucha was a strong patriot of his Czech homeland which motivated him in the creation of his monumental series to which it would be hard to find a parallel elsewhere in the world. Mucha moved to Bohemia in 1910 where he began, The Slav Epic - a series of 20 large-format canvases (the largest measuring over 6 by 8 meters) depicting the history of the Slav people and civilization. Mucha conceived it as a monument for all the Slavonic peoples and he devoted the latter half of his career to the realization of this project.
This exhibition of The Slav Epic is the first time in the world all 20 pieces have been displayed together outside of the Czech Republic along with 80 other amazing exhibits from across Alfons Mucha career.
