Worth a Thousand Words: Alphonse Mucha

Alphonse Mucha, Self Portrait
via WikiPaintings
I love the expression on Mucha's face.

I also love the fact that we know him for work that is very different than the portrait style above. If we hear Alphonse Mucha, it is likely that a style doesn't come to mind for most people like me. One look though, and we know his style very well.

  1. I saw an exhibit on Alphonse Mucha at the Czech and Slovak Museum in Cedar Rapids IA about a year and a half ago and I have been a fan ever since. The theatrical posters and nationalist art were just beautiful.
