Alphonse Mucha: The Spirit of Art Nouveau

October 16, 1999 - January 2, 2000

The Worcester Art Museum is the only northeast venue for this must-see exhibition, which unveils more than 100 works by Alphonse Mucha, the avant-garde artist who pioneered art nouveau at the turn of the century. Few artists inspired European and American culture as fully as did Mucha, whose intricate posters, decorative panels, magazine covers, illustrated books, and elaborate jewelry established him as one of the most versatile creators of his day.

Art nouveau transformed advertising and commercial art at the end of the 19th century. In the dawn of a new millennium, you'll be captivated by this enchanting exhibition and sense Mucha's continued influence on today's art. Enjoy the exhibition and the roster of related events planned for this fall!
