Mucha Seasons

mucha seasons parastone statuesAlphonse Mucha (1860-1939)had a beautiful singing voice which enabled him to earn his own secondary school fees in the Moravian capital Brno. However, drawing continued to be his great passion and - aged 19 - he left for Vienna where he worked as an apprentice draughtsman for a studio which designed and decorated theater scenery. Upon his return to Moravin (in what is currently the Czech Republic) his talent was spotted by the wealthy Count Karl Khuen-Belasi, who enabled him to study at the Akademie der Bildenden Kuneste in Munich. Mucha continued his studies in Paris, the Mecca of the art world at the time. He made extra money drawing illustrations for magazines and advertisements. Quite unexpectedly this proved to be designed on the spot for the play Gismonda starting the legendary Sarah Bernard. A few weeks later, Pariswas covered in posters and they were stolen en masse. Mucha instantly became the most in demand illustrator of the Belle Epoque. The artist was not entirely happy with the rapid triumph of Art Nouveau in the decorative arts. He kept emphasizing that his art followed his Slavic soul, not some fashionable trend. His inspirations were old religious art, symbolism and Japanese prints with their stylized lines and clear-cut structure which had been rediscovered in the 19th Century.
