Description

A legend in his own lifetime, Alphonse Mucha precipitated his rise to world fame in 1894 with his poster of actress Sarah Bernhardt in Gismonda, which introduced the art nouveau style. Mucha was born in 1860 in Moravia, now part of the Czech Republic. His family opened this museum, Muchovo Muzeum Praha (Mucha Museum), in 1998. It contains the artist's famously ornate posters, cookie and champagne labels, bicycle ads and much more. Each item shows off his use and mastery of intricate detail and pastel colors. There are also other images, painted depictions of age, poverty and war, the the artist's sketchbooks showing how he worked out his decorative patterns, and photographs both by and of Mucha. Prague is full of Mucha souvenirs, and the gift shop here is a good place to find some of the more tasteful ones. Call ahead for more information.
