Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau Visionary
North Carolina Museum of Art
Exhibition Day Trip
Saturday, November 20, 2021
Registration Fee: $129/$109 TRAA members
The Lifetime Learning Center, together with the Twin Rivers Artists Association (TRAA), invite you join us for a day trip to the North Carolina Museum of Art to experience the exhibition, Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau Visionary.
Czech-born Alphonse Mucha (1860–1939) was one of the most influential and celebrated artists in turn-of-the-20th-century Paris. He is best known for his graphic work, such as theater posters for the famous actress Sarah Bernhardt, and decorative panels and advertisements featuring graceful women. Mucha created a distinctive approach characterized by harmonious compositions, sinuous forms, organic lines, and muted colors, which all became synonymous with the decorative style called art nouveau.
Despite the powerful impact of Mucha’s style, his ideas behind its development are less well-known. Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau Visionary draws on the latest research to examine the theoretical aspects of his style, which evolved as a language for communication with the wider public. The exhibit features over 100 objects from the Mucha Trust collection, including rarely seen works from the artist’s family collection.
Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau Visionary is co-organized by the North Carolina Museum of Art and the Mucha Foundation of Prague.
