Top Ten Paintings by Alphonse Mucha

Alphonse Mucha1

       Alphonse Maria Mucha was born on July 24, 1860-1939 in the town of Ivancice, Moravia (now in the CzechRepublic, then part of the Austrian Empire). His singing abilities allowed him to continue his education through high-school in the Moravian capital of Brno, however drawing was first love since childhood. He worked at decorative painting jobs in Moravia, mostly painting theatrical scenery, then in 1879 moved to Vienna to work for a leading Viennese theatrical design company, while informally furthering his artistic education. When a fire destroyed his employer’s business in 1881 he returned to Moravia, doing freelance decorative and portrait painting. Count Karl Khuen of Mikulov hired Mucha to decorate Hrušovany Emmahof Castle with murals, and was impressed enough that he agreed to sponsor Mucha’s formal training at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. Mucha moved to Paris in 1887, and continued his studies at Académie Julian and Academie Colarossi while also producing magazine and advertising illustrations.
