Alphonse Mucha created wonderful commercial art originally commissioned by advertisers to promote (European & US) events, products and services. The lithographic process used in the original produced superb color and stunning graphics. His work is definitive of the Art Nouveau period and particularly fanciful, all are decorative and continue to impact and entertain today.
Alphonse Mucha was born in 1860 in Ivancice, Moravia, which is near the city of Brno in the modern Czech Republic. Read a brief biography of this wonderful artist on
