GusArt, Sketch 6/7
‘Find yourself another profession where you’ll be more useful,’ that’s what Alphonse Mucha heard from the Prague Academy of Fine Arts.
Unmoved, Mucha continued the artistic development, and his iconic style later became the embodiment of Art Nouveau. However, he tried to distance himself from this very movement, expressing willingness to devote solely to personal projects. Mucha’s big breakthrough happened when he volunteered to produce an advertising poster for the play ‘Gismonda’ staged in Théâtre de la Renaissance. In two weeks, the artist completed the lithographic poster, which successfully attracted the crowds. People liked the design so much that the posters were being stolen from the streets. This Czech artist specialized in decorative painting jobs and creating advertising art, mainly for plays and commercial products. Alphonse Mucha was also a great patriot. Through his works, he wished to induce patriotic feelings in his people, suffering under the rule of the Austro-Hungarian empire.
And finally, as a fun fact, ‘mucha’ means housefly in Polish.
More about Alphonse Maria Mucha here. Plus, I’ve found a lovely article about Gismonda: Europeana.
