Born in Moravia in 1860, Alphonse Mucha moved to Paris in his 20s and went on to become one of the greatest exponents of the art nouveau style. Mucha was one of the most fascinating artistic personalities of the turn of the 20th century. He was not only a painter and graphic artist, but also took an interest in sculpture, jewelry, interior decorating, and utilitarian art. Alfons Mucha died in Prague shortly before the invasion of Czechoslovakia by German troops on July 14, 1939. It was Mucha’s belief that through the creation of beautiful works of art the quality of life would be improved. He also believed that it was his duty as an artist to promote art for ordinary people. He was able to fulfill both of these objectives by means of his innovative concept of the mass-produced decorative panel.

11 Alphonse Mucha

PowerPoint Presentation:

Murals by Mucha in the Lord Mayor's Hall, Obecní Dům (Municipal House), Prague (1910-1911) The Obecní Dům (Municipal House) is a municipal centre for social and official gatherings. Designed by architects Antonín Balšánek and Osvald Polívka, it is a temple to Czech Art Nouveau and venerates both eastern and western art. Several prominent Czech artists of the day were enlisted to decorate the interiors. Mucha was commissioned to decorate the circular salon of the Lord Mayor's Hall. Mucha's designs celebrate the heroic past of the Czech people and the unity of the Slav nations. The Slavic Concord on the circular ceiling is supported by eight pendentives on which civic virtues are personified by figues from Czech history. www.muchafoundation.org

Mucha badge freemasons Among his many other accomplishments, Mucha was also the restorer of Czech Freemasonry His Art Nouveau style was often imitated. The Art Nouveau style however, was one that Mucha attempted to disassociate himself from throughout his life; he always insisted that rather than maintaining any fashionable stylistic form, his paintings were entirely a product of himself and Czech art. He declared that art existed only to communicate a spiritual message, and nothing more; hence his frustration at the fame he gained by his commercial art, when he most wanted to concentrate on more artistic projects.

Mucha "wanted to show that the Slavs were very attached to art and not to arms," after the assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz-Ferdinand in Sarajevo by a Slav nationalist, said Jean-Louis Gaillemin. The assassination, which occurred in 1914, sparked off World War I
