Czech artist Alphonse Mucha created everything from postcards and theatre sets to his famous (and very distinctive) Art Nouveau paintings. Alphonse Mucha art has a pretty, flowing style that showcases nature’s beauties – whether that be women or flowers! His densely decorated posters used some serious glamour to sell top brands like Moët & Chandon champagne with great success.
Mucha prints make a great finishing touch to many of today’s hot interior design trends, such as vintage chic and modern Parisian. Take a look at our gorgeous collection of Alphonse Mucha posters to find your perfect piece of Art Nouveau.
A celebration of femininity
Alphonse Mucha is renowned for capturing and celebrating feminine beauty. In fact, this is thought to be a statement against the growing industrialisation of the era. Providing an alternative to masculine power, Alphonse Mucha instead created intensely feminine art with pastel colours, tumbling flowers and delicately beautiful women. You’d be hard-pressed to find an Alphonse Mucha print that doesn’t have women at its heart!
You’ll find a great variety to choose from, with a colour palette to complement every room. For the ultimate in girliness, ‘Moet & Chandon, White Star, rose’ is full of pretty pinks, while ‘The Moon’ uses blues, purples and greens for an intense effect. The washed-out turquoise and peach colours in ‘Evening contemplation’ couldn’t be more quintessentially Art Nouveau and would work beautifully in a dressing room or vintage-inspired living room.
Make the most of your prints by choosing the right material
Alphonse Mucha had a style that works with a range of materials. If you want to go for the most authentic choice, then printing onto stretched cotton canvas and hanging in a floating frame will give you a fantastic gallery-ready finish. Art Nouveau was all about embracing the modern however, so don’t be afraid to go for one of our sleek contemporary materials.
If you have chosen Alphonse Mucha prints with night-time scenes of starry skies, printing onto slender Alu-Dibond can give your colours an extra intensity, while prints with pale pastel colours look lovely printed onto lightweight Forex foam board. Perhaps you’ve chosen one of his classic advertisements and want to give it a glossy finish? Acrylic glass is the material for you! And don’t forget, our high-quality photo paper is easily framed and gives you a great performance for the price.
