Alphonse Mucha - Art Nouveau Visionary

Published on January 11, 2022

Czech-born Alphonse Mucha 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. Additional works from the NCMA’s collection highlight the American interpretation of the European aesthetics that influenced Mucha as well as his close friendship with French sculptor Auguste Rodin.

The exhibition is being held at the North Carolina Museum of Art, 2110 Blue Ridge Rd, Raleigh, NC 27607 from October 23, 2021 - January 23, 2022.
