Alphonse Mucha: An Insight into the Artist
This event has ended.
The exhibition is a major retrospective of the renowned Czech Art Nouveau artist Alphonse Mucha. It will feature many works that have never been shown in Japan before, as well as a wide range of oil paintings, studies, sketches, jewellery and posters from the Mucha family collection, including iconic posters of the legendary actress Sarah Bernhardt, for which the artist is widely acclaimed. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Mucha Foundation, represented by John Mucha, grandson of the artist.
While many of the previous exhibitions on Mucha presented his works in chronological order, this exhibition will explore his artistic vision and ideals behind his works. Through Mucha's own words and works, we will be able to gain an insight into his creative process, ambitions and achievements. The exhibition will consist of six sections representing important themes or phases in his career - 1: Mucha the Czech, 2: Sarah Bernhardt & the Theatre World, 3: Le Style Mucha & Art Nouveau, 4: The Message of Beauty, 5: Paris 1900 and 6: Visions for Humanity.
The exhibition will include over 240 works, including rare works such as the satin-silk edition of "The Arts" series, comprised of four-colour lithographs: "Dance", "Painting", "Poetry" and "Music". This exhibition will be a great opportunity for all Mucha fans and art lovers to deepen their understanding of Mucha and his inner world.
