Alphonse Mucha


Today I was given a bit of a treat. Although not on the itinerary for the trip, there were posters throughout the city for a Mucha exhibit in one of the museums. He is one of my favorite artists and being able to witness such an extensive collection of his work was inspiring. I was able to see the actual scale of his beautiful posters, as well see his process behind creating them. I was also able to see how multi-talented he was, as although I was familiar with a lot of his printed work, he also did paintings and packaging and jewellry that were all so stunning. After seeing the Banksy exhibit this morning as well, it is refreshing to see more contemporary art juxtaposed against such an ancient city.
