A Czech painter, illustrator and graphic artist, Alphonse Mucha is a major exponent of the Art Nouveau style, best known for his distinctly stylised and decorative theatrical posters and advertisements of idealised female figures. His unique and groundbreaking poster designs are among the best-known images of the Belle Époque period. In the latter stages of his career, he returned to his homeland and devoted himself to a series of twenty monumental history paintings, known as 'The Slav Epic', depicting the history of all the Slavic peoples of the world. Delphi's Masters of Art Series presents the world's first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Mucha's collected artworks, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
