Mucha and the beauty of Art Nouveau | In Rome, the works and posters of the artist who created a new genre of visual art
The Complesso del Vittoriano is tinged with Art Nouveau thanks to Alphonse Mucha, one of the greatest artists of the movement that conquered Europe and the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A Czech artist, Mucha is considered one of the fathers of the style that enchanted the Belle Epoque. The exhibition is on display until September, 11 in one of the most evocative places of Rome.
 
A trip inside Art Nouveau
The exhibition is a journey into images of glamorous women combined with an innovative typographical layout. With his works Alphonse Mucha soon became a promoter of innovative art and strong visual impact, populated by beautiful female characters mixed with bucolic scenes, works full of precious details. These posters become a symbol of his time, along with lithographs, paintings, photographs and drawings as The Season: Summer, which as a bucolic theme, or inspired by his muse Sarah Bernhardt, depicted in Gismonda, Tosca and La dame aux camellias.
 
What to expect from the exhibition 
The six sections of the exhibition in the Brasini area of the Vittoriano show many aspects of the artistic personality of Mucha: A Bohemian in Paris, A creator of images for the general public, A cosmopolitan, The Mystic, The Patriot, and last but not least The artist-philosopher. Through a journey that explores the life of the protagonist of Art Nouveau, it is easier to understand his creative genius and innovative scope of his style that manages to pervade every aspect of the illustration of that time. Mucha's expressive language will be later copied and re-used, especially in the advertising field.
