The exhibition Alfons Mucha e le atmosfere Art Nouveau at Palazzo Reale in Milan recreates the elegant and sensual feeling of the era of Art Nouveau. At the centre of the exhibition are over 100 works by the Czech painter and decorative artist Alfons Mucha, including posters and decorative panels.
Alfons Mucha (1860-1939) was one of the most important interpreters of Art Nouveau, promoting a new powerful language through innovative visual art. His posters with female figures were popular across many parts of society, having a signature style that is still widely recognised today.
Mucha’s works are complemented by a series of ceramics, furniture, wrought iron, glass, sculptures and drawings by European artists and manufacturers from the same era.
