Join our docent-led tour to explore the gorgeous Art Nouveau designs of Alphonse Mucha. His expressive works are featured in this exhibition drawn from one of the finest private collections in the U.S. The Czech artist’s works include expressive imagery that helped shape the aesthetics of French Art Nouveau. Taking inspiration from the unruly aspects of the natural world, Art Nouveau influenced art and architecture, especially in graphic work and illustration, with its sinuous lines and whiplash curves. These 75 rare original lithographs, proofs, and drawings, as well as books and illustrations, examine the broad range of Mucha’s work, which created a new art form for the 20th century.
Admission at the door is free for HMA members (bring your membership card). Admission is $8 for nonmembers.
