Výstava iMucha nabízí unikátní zážitek z celosvětově nejkomplexnější sbírky díla legendy české secese, Alfonse Muchy.
The iMucha exhibition offers a unique experience of the world’s most comprehensive collection of works by the legend of Czech Art Nouveau, Alfons Mucha. The collection, which was assembled by Ivan Lendl, became the most visited fine arts exhibition in the history of the Czech Republic during its first exhibition in the Municipal House in 2013. Since that time, it has undergone significant changes. Dozens of new original artifacts have been added and, above all, they will be presented at their world première in partially digitised form. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, visitors will suddenly find themselves in a unique decorative Art Nouveau environment.
Short biography of Alfons Mucha: Alfons Mucha was a world-famous Czech painter, graphic artist and designer, who earned particular fame for applied art (posters, labels, books, jewellery and furniture). He was also a key figure in the decorative Art Nouveau style, which established the “look” of the time. His name and works are associated primarily with Paris, where he spent years of his life. The terms “le style Mucha” and “art nouveau” or “the modern style” refer to the last of the universal styles. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, he mastered everything from architecture to furniture and fashion, to biscuit tin stickers. This painterly signature style is associated with the name of Alfons Mucha, the man whose works brought life to Art Nouveau. He was the style’s most significant representative and was welcomed and honoured in America as the world’s greatest decorative artist. His ticket to fame did not come through noble salon canvases, but rather through paintings of the street – posters. Mucha’s journey to the position of an admired artist was not a short one. It led him from his native town of Ivančice to Brno, Vienna, Munich and Paris. Information on tickets, possible discounts, schedule of events, notices for visitors, etc.
