Mucha, Alphonse

Mucha, Alphonse
(7/24/1860 Ivanice, Moravia-7/14/1939) (Czechoslovakia / Austria / Germany / France)
   Painter and graphic designer. Studied at the Julian Academy in Paris. Considered the major proponent of the decorative art nouveau style, especially influential through his advertising and poster designs. Like many art nouveau artists he emphasized langorous female figures, sometimes scantily clad, with emphasis on sensuous curves. Some of his images were criticized for their overt eroticism.
