Alphonse Mucha:
In Quest of Beauty
16 June to 29 October 2017
Starting his working life as a theatre scene painter, Alphonse Mucha became best known for his Art Nouveau poster designs. His big break came when he was commissioned to create a poster for the play Gismonda, starring the French actress Sarah Bernhardt. Although that work, and around 100 of his recognisable designs, are included in the exhibition, this touring show delves deeper to explore the theme of beauty –
a subject close to Mucha’s heart – through drawings, paintings, photographs and rare sculpture by the artist.
Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.
