Mucha Poster Exhibition

Wednesday 1 April to Sunday 27 September 2015
Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum in Bournemouth UK.
A world exclusive new retrospective.

The aim of art is to celebrate beauty of the work of Alphonse Mucha.
After a gap of almost 15 years, The Mucha Foundation returns to the UK to create this specially-commissioned exhibition in partnership with Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum. Czech master of Art Nouveau and the quintessential artist of fin-de-siècle Paris, Alphonse Mucha’s distinctive style explored feminine beauty through poster design, magazines and, even, baby food packaging. The opulent aesthetic of the Russell-Cotes, full of exquisite items from around the globe, offers the perfect
backdrop for Alphonse Mucha’s iconic imagery of beauty, fantasy and elegance. In Quest of Beauty showcases key aspects of Mucha’s work.

Spring is in the air where I am, which is near Toronto, Canada. In case you did not know, as many assume I'm in New York, but with the power of the Web I can be everywhere. Over the last few years Mucha has become one of the most sought after artist's of the period with his full size poster fetching near record prices in auction. His most famous works are becoming exceedingly rare, and I'm pleased to have for the first time, two gorgeous hand signed versions of his Le Pater as well as others (see my Mucha gallery).
So please check out the links above for all things Mucha. Also please see my Latest Acquisitions for other poster gems. including discounted Vintage movie classics

Wishing you a wonderful April!

Forbes Magazine, Best of the Web - Review

"This lovingly compiled site excels at a much-ignored niche: original editions from the Maitres de L'Affiche series - small versions of popular posters specially printed for collectors between 1896 and 1900. Any poster collector will be impressed with the roster of artists represented here: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Leonetto Cappiello, Alphonse Mucha and other graphic masters. And an illuminating mini history accompanies every item. The site's host, a well-respected Art dealer, now sells exclusively online and at Vintage Poster Fairs. Best: Thoughtfully written History of the Poster. Worst: Collection sticks mainly to master artists."
Update: I have expanded my artist listings to include non-masters. Greg
