Drawings by Mucha

The Belle Epoque, the Art Nouveau era will trend with the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition at MoMA Museum in NYC, opening July 26. Be inspired … And scroll down to the second page, where there’s more, including the key Lautrec background to know.

Art Nouveau drawings and design in the landmark Style Book published in1905,  Mucha’s Figures Decoratives are by one of the most-famous decorative artists in Paris at the turn of the century, Alphonse Maria Mucha (1860-1939.)  He loved long hair, was obsessed with curves coiling around idealized women which, with his Sarah Bernhardt posters, made him famous then, and to this day.   For the book on Amazon, click (but know the front cover color is warmer on my copy!)
