Alphonse Maria Mucha (1860-1939) is most often remembered for the prominent role he played in shaping the aesthetics of French Art Nouveau at the turn of the century. Mucha worked in a variety of media that were accessible to a wide audience, and so the reach of his art extended beyond the borders of “high art.” Everything could be a work of art, encompassing a person’s daily experience, from wallpaper to furniture, clothing or promotional posters around the city.
