The Alfons Mucha Exhibition, Flower of Art Nouveau is now being displayed at the Urasoe Art Museum. Mucha, who was born in Chech in 1860, is now recognized as one the most notable painters/designers of Art Nouveau. His so-called “Mucha Style” still dazzles people with the exotic beauty of the women he painted and his designs with plant-like curves and patterns. This exhibition features about 400 works, including posters, ornamental panels, book illustrations, stamps and bills. His magnum opus Gismonda is also on display.
