    Alfons Mucha

    I posted this in my SB the other day, and judging by the respons it seems like not alot of people know about Mucha, or have not seen this particular work, so I decided to post it here aswell. Enjoy.

    ALFONS MUCHA:

    Just wanted to share for those who havnt seen Muchas work.
    He was a czech artist who lived from 1860-1939.
    This is far from all great work hes done, but I just think those are so beautiful.

    Look, I dont know if your being funny (if so I apologize) but not everyone on this forum knows all there is to know about art history and past masters.

    For example, a year ago I could only mention 2 artists myself; Picasso and Da Vinci.

    A lot of people know Mucha, but the Mucha they know is almost all from his Parisian period. The later work is far less well known, although that has changes somewhat in the last generation.

    Krel I would also recommend that you look at the illustrator Bob Peak.

    Mucha is known, but more so for his art nouveau stuff, the advertisements and all, unlike alot of his later painterly stuff. Both are lovely methinks.

    In this sort of place in particular, Mucha is well known; but hey, we can all use the reminder of his awesome stuff! A good selection you've chosen here.

    In general, people are aware of Mucha's promotional pieces, such as his Art Nuveau ads and posters, but don't know about his more painterly works. I think more people who frequent boards like this one and others, as well as others who wanted to learn more about his work, have done research and found the other styles. I love his Epic and a few of his portraits, and I found them after looking through the library and finding books with his work.

    Thanks for putting up the drawings. Saved them for future ref. It's always awesome when you get references to the lesser known stuff.
