Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

The exhibition explores the work and legacy of the Czech painter and decorative artist Alphonse Mucha (1860–1939).

Through his stylish andbeautiful theatrical and advertising posters, the exhibition examines how ‘le style Mucha’ evolved and became synonymous with the international Art Nouveau style. It also examines the often-hidden, skilled draughtsmanship behind Mucha’s internationally recognisable designs,and explores how his artistic philosophy influenced his later career. 

Alongside works by Mucha feature several key objects from Glasgow’s own collection; artworks that demonstrate the interchange of artistic ideas between Scotland, the rest of the UK, and continental Europe.
