One of the key representatives of Art Nouveau, the Czech painter also known as Alfons Mucha (1860-1939) gets yet another Tokyo exhibition – this time at Roppongi's National Art Center. To say Mucha is one of the most popular artists in Japan is hardly an exaggeration, with numerous displays on his work held across the country practically every year. This one, however, is a rather grand affair, as all twenty pieces of the decorative master's 'Slav Epic' series – considered his greatest accomplishment, with many links to Mucha's Slavic identity and roots – are being exhibited outside the Czech Republic for the first time. In total, around 100 works will be displayed, including the first posters Mucha made for actress Sarah Bernhardt. This is set to be one of the biggest shows of 2017, so be prepared to show up early or queue.
