Online Mucha Exhibit

Post by Kelly Thorson » Sun Mar 18, 2007 9:23 pm

Being an avid Mucha fan, I was delighted to find this online exhibitof his works. The exhibit which will run from Oct 06 to September 07 will feature over 400 of his images, featuring a different theme every two weeks. The detailing in his panels is an amazing source of inspiration.
Enjoy....
I believe there is no shame in failure. Rather, the shame lies in the loss of all the things that might have been, but for the fear of failure.

Thank you for the notice about Mucha. I was drawn to his art and art nouveau just before or at the same time I began delving into searching out french embossing. Both beckoned to me in a very familiar way that I have still not been able to pull up to the front of my brain. I don't believe in reincarnation, or previous lifetimes, but it surely feels as if it smacks at that.

Great heads up and thanx. This took me back also. The "Zodiac"image was on an album cover from the 60's.... Naturally I bought it but the contents never lived up to the cover! Another aside is tomorrow I'll be installing a large(ish) sign with a rip of the "Lefevre Biscuits" piece.

I'm glad this link reached some that will enjoy it.
I was really surprised at how much work I hadn't seen...I thought I was a keen follower. :)
I've always wanted to do a series of his panels in murals.

Thanks for the link, Kelly. I've been to Prague and seen the Mucha museum, which has a very comprehensive collection of his work. Mucha was a major influence on the American masters like Atkinson and Charles Strong, among others.
