Muchovo muzeum review Rate it

This museum is dedicated to Alfons Mucha (1860-1939), perhaps the most famous of all Czech visual artists. Known for his commercial work such as mass-produced decorative panels and posters for Sarah Bernhardt's theatre performances, Mucha exercised his greatest influence through his Encyclopaedia for Craftsmen (1902), a catalogue of art nouveau decorative elements, forms and designs. Mucha created a stained-glass window for St Vitus's Cathedral and the Slavonic Epic, a series of gigantic narrative oil paintings that now reside in Moravský Krumlov castle, south-west of Brno. The museum also displays lithographs, drawings, sketches and notebooks from Mucha's days in Paris.
