Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau

Huth, Boeing, Salmon, & Haws Galleries
March 24 – June 23, 2019

The gorgeous Art Nouveau designs of Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) are featured in this acclaimed exhibition drawn from one of the finest private collections of the artist’s work in the United States.  Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau features 75 works by the celebrated Czech master, whose expressive and seductive imagery helped shape the aesthetics of French Art Nouveau at the turn of the 20th century. Taking inspiration from the unruly aspects of the natural world, Art Nouveau influenced art and architecture, especially in graphic work and illustration, with its sinuous lines and whiplash curves. Through rare original lithographs, proofs and drawings, as well as books, illustrations, portfolios and ephemera, the exhibition examines the broad range of Mucha’s work, which emphasizes creating a new art fit for the new century. Organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA.
