ABOUT THE ARTIST Alfonse Mucha (1860-1939) was one of the most important decorative artists working in Paris at the turn of the 20th century. His distinctive and original posters and his decorative panels in Le style Mucha  became almost synonymous with French Art Nouveau. At the height of his career as a decorative artist he became convinced that art should serve ideas: he became a devoted contributor to the artistic activities of the interwar Czech government and he completed a major and controversial cycle of monumental paintings called The Slav Epic as well as portraits and large symbolic paintings.
