Alphonse Mucha: posters and photographs by Alphonse Mucha( Book )

5 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alphonse Marie Mucha was the most fashionable decorative artist in Paris at the turn of the century, 'Le style Mucha' influenced clothes, colours, interior decoration and even the entrances of the Paris Métro. His panneaux décoratifs and his posters, especially those designed for Sarah Bernhardt, have always been collector's pieces. In an age of great poster artists like Chéret and Toulouse-Lautrec, he created a completely new style. His work had both precursors and plagiarists, but his particular combination of draughtsmanship and instinctive ordering of ornament in space was inimitable. In his sympathetic appreciation of his father's life and work, Jiri Mucha traces the career and achievements of his father as an artist and describes the ultimate tragedy of his life. The grace and originality of Mucha's art is illustrated by a comprehensive selection of his work with over 100 black and white and 40 colours and delicate draughtsmanship. Many of the photographs that Mucha took of his models have recently been re-discovered, giving a fascinating glimpse of the raw material that Mucha transmuted in his drawings and paintings. The photographic section of the book is introduced by Dr. Aaron Scharf who places Mucha's photography in the context of his time. And the use that Mucha made of his photographs in the planning of his work is discussed by Marina Henderson in an essay on Mucha and the Camera. -- from dust jacket

The art nouveau style book of Alphonse Mucha : all 72 plates from "Documents décoratifs" in original color by Alphonse Mucha( Book )

18 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in French and English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the general public, Alphonse Maria Mucha (1860{u2013}1939) is perhaps best known for his posters of Sarah Bernhardt and magnificent decorative panels such as "The Seasons" {u2014} works that continue to grow in popularity and value as the resurgence of interest in Art Nouveau increases. Among graphic artists and commercial designers, Mucha is praised for the innovative style books that pioneered the use of Art Nouveau in commercial packaging, design, and ornament. The most important of these style books was Documents Décoratifs, published in 1901 at the height of Mucha's fame as the high priest of the Art Nouveau movement. While the artist's fame rests largely on his posters, it is in the smaller works of the style books, or design portfolios, that the refinement of his technique can best be appreciated. The present volume, carefully reproduced from an extremely rare and valuable set of originals, contains all 72 plates of the Documents Décoratifs portfolio. Included are designs for jewelry, wallpaper, stained glass, furniture, and tableware; figure and botanical studies; and a selection of Mucha's famous panneaux décoratifs. Eighteen of the plates are in full color, while the remaining 54 are reproduced in two or more color tones. In addition to numerous innovative designs for practical and decorative objects, the elegant draftsmanship and meticulous execution that characterized all of Mucha's work is evident in studies of langorous nudes, portrait sketches, delicately rendered plant and animal motifs, exquisite modeling of drapery and cloth, and the flowing, fantastic forms created as experiments in pure design. In the Foreword by Gabriel Mourey, specially translated for this edition, Mucha's own philosophy of art, and the relation of the Documents to the rest of his work, receive an appreciative and informative discussion. Hitherto available only in scattered sources, or in the libraries of wealthy collectors, the complete Documents Décoratifs is now available in this inexpensive one-volume edition. Lovers of Mucha's work, admirers of Art Nouveau, and the application of that style to the decorative arts, will want to own this fine royalty-free collection by one of the greatest masters of the technique. "[Documents Décoratifs is] ... an encyclopedic source for Mucha's style in every branch of decorative and applied art and one of the few books on design where even individual plates are sought after by collectors." {u2014} Marina Henderson, The Graphic Style of Alphonse Mucha
