Featured Artist: Alphonse Mucha


featureartistHi!!
So today’s feature is the famous Czech artist and illustrator Alphonse Mucha. Between the years 1860 and 1939, Mucha made a career in illustration and decorative arts. He began early, as a child drawing was his favourite hobby. He eventually moved to Vienna to work in theatre, and then to Paris to continue his studies. He found his way into illustration and commercial art in Paris, and began work with a company to produce posters. He became quite sucessful in his poster illustrations and he busily created paintings, posters, ads, book illustrations and even jewellery designs. His style became very distinctive and still is today! Check out his work below, and if you are looking for more info on his life visit HERE!

  4. I fell in love with the art of Alphonse Mucha lusting over the onyx beads with his paintings on them. My favorite mail order bead store carries them. I know nothing more about him other than he was Russian, but they are so gorgeous and lushly colored.
    Thank you for writing about him.
