Présentation de l'éditeur

Alphonse Mucha is known largely for having originated Art Nouveau, when his poster of the actress Sarah Bernhardt became a legendary icon of the movement. Mucha went on to design hundreds of pieces in the decorative arts field, but later distanced himself from the style he pioneered, devoting his time and energy to painting. This book presents the full array of Mucha's artistic contributions not only his posters and jewellery designs but also his design for the pavilion of Bosnia and Herzegovina at the 1900 world fair. The book also includes his works on canvas, which include pastels and frescoes, and his magnum opus, The Slavic Epic, a series of 20 paintings depicting the history of his native people. A stunning selection of 700 colour illustrations is accompanied with essays that explore Mucha's style and inspirations, his transition away from the decorative arts, and his forays into photography. Fans of Art Nouveau will treasure this dazzling and unique study of the artist and his contributions to design and illustration.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The binding is not the best but the material in here is great 27 novembre 2016

I had to buy this even though I already own a Mucha art book because it contains more than just the usual colored poster art he's known for. It's filled with rough pencil sketches, conte drawings, lettering, furniture carvings and design work! The binding is not the best but the material in here is great.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Rest Of The Story 17 novembre 2009
Par Mark Roland - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Alphonse Mucha is one of the most loved artists of the last hundred years for good reason. He was a complete master of graphic design, his posters and period advertisements are now synonymous with the Art Nouveau movement. The graceful line, and elegant arrangement of shapes and colors compel art lovers even more now, than they did his intended audience, through their continual reproduction and publication.

This book really features an artist less known and appreciated. While it includes a generous selection of posters, book illustrations and related designs, the true focus of this volume is the work he did in the years after the peak of Art Nouveau, when he embarked on a vastly ambitious cycle of works relating the history of the Slav people. For these works were monumental in scale as well as conception, and he spent the decades after his Paris fame engaged in their creation.

Here we have Mucha as a painter and muralist, the power of his design skills are put to a different purpose than the promotion of events and products. The illustrations in this book are excellent, and short of a visit to the Czech Republic, are the best look most of us will have of the encyclopedic depiction of figures and landscapes that comprise the Epic. It is a grand vision, one that is often tragic portrayed here, yet as beautiful in its way as the familiar Sarah Bernhardt posters. There is a new, subtle and melancholy use of color in the murals and tonality often replaces the linear crispness of his graphic style. These works may not be as accessible to some, but have a rich and solemn genius.

This volume does not gloss over the earlier works by any means, his jewelry, photography and other less known illustrations are here too. If you are only interested in the Paris period of his work, this might not be the best single book for you, others cover that in great detail. For an overview of his entire output, however, this is a very valuable resource, lavishly and lovingly produced, it makes a great addition to the library of any art lover.

Beautiful book of the artist's work and stories about his life and inspirations. I love looking through it for my own inspirations. I usually buy Kindle books, but this one needs to be out on a coffee table where everyone can enjoy it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best monographs of Mucha's work 15 octobre 2014
Par Abbott A. Smith - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Outstanding monograph of Mucha's work. Excellent reproductions and an excellent survey of the breadth of his portfolio. Not only does this work cover the poster art, but it explores his decorative designs, photography, drawings and the Slavic murals in lush detail.
