Generally agreed to be one of the most important contributors to Art Nouveau, the Czech artist Alphonse Mucha was trained, celebrated and lived most of his life in Paris. His unforgettably iconic images of Sarah Bernhardt and others embody the spirit of the fin de siè cle. But underneath his successful career as an artist and poster designer lay a passionate Slav nationalist whose most important and long neglected works are still being painstakingly restored and exhibited in the Czech republic.

This book is the first comprehensive overview of his life and work and is published in association with the Mucha Museum in Prague.

Sarah Mucha is an art historian, married to the grandson of Alphonse Mucha; she lives in London. She is a trustee of the Mucha Foundation and works to set up exhibitions of the artist's work worldwide.
