Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau Visionary
October 21, 2022 – January 22, 2023
Czech-born Alphonse Mucha (1860 – 1939) was one of the most celebrated artists in Paris at the turn of the 20th century. As an influential force behind the art nouveau movement, he created sumptuous posters and advertising—promoting such everyday products as cigarette papers and tea biscuits—that transformed the streets of Paris into open-air art exhibitions. Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau Visionary celebrates the Mucha Trust Collection’s first major U.S. tour in 20 years, featuring a vast array of posters, illustrations, ornamental objects, and rarely seen sculpture, photographs, and self-portraits. The exhibition is curated by Tomoko Sato.
- Speed Chat Spot. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from 2 – 3 pm, a friendly docent will be at the Speed Chat Spot located in Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau Visionary to share stories and answer questions.
