Description (Inner Flap)

By Rosalind Ormiston. Showcasing the Art Nouveau masterpieces of one of the world's most outstanding and treasured artists, this beautifully illustrated reference book charts the life and work of a man who epitomized Parisian art during the fin-de-siecle.

Telling the story of a man who was to dazzle the commercial world, the first half of the book explores how he achieved such success. From his early family life in Ivancice right through to his final days in Prague, it delves into every aspect of his career as it developed. Next, beginning with his early Parisian posters for the actress Sarah Bernhardt, the second half of the book focuses on Mucha's most intense period of productivity in Paris, and documents his success as an avant-garde artist. Exploring his many decorative panels and commercial posters as well as his illustrations for books and magazines, it takes an in-depth look at his changing artistic styles of the period and reveals his sources of inspiration. The informative text goes hand-in-hand with stunning reproductions of Mucha's most storring works, from his Gismonda poster of 1894 to his The Moon and the Stars series of decorative panels of 1902.

Featuring over 150 of his most important graphic works, Alphonse Muca: Masterworks is the perfect gateway to learning more about this versatile artist - one who was truly successful in producing both commercial pieces and 'high art'. It is an ideal read for those with little knowledge of Mucha as well as those looking to learn more.
