World renowned artist/painter Alphonse Mucha was born in the Czech Republic in 1860. He produced a multitude of posters, advertisements, paintings and book illustrations in The "Mucha Style", which became known as Art Nouveau (French for new art). The Art Nouveau period was most famous from 1890 - 1910.
Alphonse Mucha was best known for his art celebrating beautiful women. Six of his most well known works are portrayed in this series.
