The Allure of Mucha's Art Nouveau

Welcome to the extraordinary exhibition dedicated to Alphonse Mucha, the father of Art Nouveau. With over two hundred incomparably beautiful works, you will journey back in time, immersing yourself in the heart of Paris between the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when the city was at the center of the world and Mucha was the most celebrated artist.

Born in Ivancice, Czech Republic, in 1860, Mucha was a fervent patriot and advocate for the political freedom of Slavic peoples. In Paris, he honed his artistic skills and crossed paths with Sarah Bernhardt, the captivating and famous actress of the era, who entrusted him with her image, catapulting him to extraordinary popularity. Thus, the legend of the 'Mucha women' was born, icons of seduction and beauty, featured in advertising campaigns for brands such as Nestlé, Moët & Chandon, and many others.

Despite his fame, Mucha never forgot his patriotic and social commitment. Upon returning to Prague in 1910, he dedicated almost twenty years to creating his magnum opus, the Slav Epic, a series of twenty enormous canvases narrating the Slavic history.

Mucha's art defined an era, introducing a new style of communication with his images of flower-like maidens, possessing a unique allure that blended the sacred and the profane. His works became famous worldwide, and his style was widely imitated, leaving an indelible mark on the collective imagination.

Come and discover the charm and power of Alphonse Mucha's works at the exhibition at the Museum of the Innocents. It's a journey into the Belle Époque and the genius of an unparalleled artist.

You can't afford to miss it!
