The most comprehensive exhibition ever seen in Australia of this visionary artist’s work at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

One of art’s great stylistic innovators, Alphonse Mucha (1860–1939) created some of the most instantly recognisable and best-loved works in modern European art. In seductive, sinuous compositions, he developed a new language that defined the look of late 19th-century Paris to be the very spirit of art nouveau.

Realised in close cooperation with the Mucha Foundation, Prague, Alphonse Mucha: Spirit of Art Nouveau is drawn from the Mucha Family Collection. Bringing together Mucha’s illustrations, jewellery, interior decoration, photographs and more, the exhibition reveals an artist and designer whose powerful influence remains with us today.

The exhibition is proudly supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW. It is accompanied by a full-colour catalogue, richly illustrated with over 200 images.
