Dance - Alphonse Mucha

                                              mucha_dance

Alphonse Mucha was a Czech designer who largely "invented" the style now known as Art Nouveau, and was known then simply as “Le Style Mucha" -- of marrying of flowing ornamental design with simple figurative images.

This decorative panel, 'Dance,' is from 1898.

You can find out more about Alphonse Mucha, including his celebrated theatre posters, at the Mucha Museum site.

It's amazing how timeless Mucha's art really feels. His style really paved the way for a new age.
