The Mucha Museum - a Foray in History

Alphonse Mucha was an Art Noveau Czech painter who was strongly responsible for popularising this kind of style. The Mucha Museum in the heart of Prague is dedicated to the work of the Czech Art Nouveau artist Alphonse Mucha.
Mucha was popular for designing posters for Sarah Bernhardt’s theatre performances and decorative panels. His posters for the popular actress were very popular and appreciated and his style was named as ‘Le Mucha style’. The Mucha Museum houses a vast collection of paintings, posters, charcoal drawings, lithographs, photographs and other paraphernalia of Mucha that offers an insight into the highly creative world of Mucha. For art lovers who are yet new to Mucha, there are guided tours in various languages including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Czech and English.
The furniture from his Paris studio has been kept on display here. The shop at the Museum sells Mucha motifs and memorabilia made exclusively for the Mucha museum shop. Beautiful postcards, silk scarves, jewellery, photos, lamps, books, mugs, handmade paper and posters with Art Noveau motifs are available for purchase.

You can also see many more creations of Mucha at Moravský Krumlov castle to the southwest of Brno. The Slav Epic, a series of paintings that portrayed the history of Czech and Slavic people is showcased here.
