Mucha Museum

this Museum was last updated on 3 Oct 04

A beautiful museum dedicated to the work of Czech art nouveau artist Alfons Mucha.

The exhibiton gives an extensive overview of the artistic work of Alphonse Mucha (1860 - 1939). Special attention is paid to his time in Paris (1887-1904), internationally the most celebrated period of his work. A set of posters from this period is on show, including the most important made for Sarah Bernhardt. A set of his characteristic decorative panels and a number of examples from Documents Décoratifs (1902) give an idea of Mucha¥s conception of Art Nouveau.

Pages from his Parisian sketchbooks, never exhibited before, can also be seen. Other decorative objects and three dimensional works including examples of decorated books can be found in the show cases. The work he created after his return to Czechoslovakia (1910-1939) forms a special group, consisting of posters, drawings and oil paintings. At the end of the exhibition we can see a suggestion of what Mucha's studio in Paris must have looked like, with some of the original furniture, photos of his family and a set of photographs taken in the studio.
A half hour long documentary film about the life and work of the artist is also a part of the exhibition.

If you require a guided tour with a professional guide, you are recommended to book 3-4 days in advance.
