poster for Mucha and Japan / Japan and Orlik

This event has ended.

Alfons Mucha (1860-1939) came to fame in a Paris under the spell of Japonism with ‘Gismonda’, his poster featuring the actress Sara Bernnardt. His influence can be seen in the works of Japanese artists of the time such as Takeji Fujishima and Hiromitsu Nakazawa.

Emil Orlik (1870-1932) developed a passion for Japan in Berlin and Vienna during the Japonism wave hitting those cities. For a year from 1900 Orlik visited Japan to study ukiyo-e engraving and dedicated himself to woodblock printing upon his return.
This exhibition showcases the Japonism-influenced work of Mucha, Orlik, and other Czech artists.
