Alfons Mucha is one of the leading international figures in the Art Nouveau movement which originated in the 1890s in Paris. Mucha's fame can, to a large degree, be accredited to his poster art, decorative panels, calendars and advertising illustrations. The Ivan Lendl Collection is currently the most complete collection of Alfons Mucha's posters in the world. It also includes many other examples of Mucha's art. This monograph, published to coincide with the exhibition Ivan Lendl: Alfons Mucha in Prague, comprises newly-produced high-quality colour prints of all the exhibits in the Lendl collection, as well as more than 100 preliminary drawings, sketches and prints which allow the reader to take a peek into Mucha's 'art kitchen'. 25 photographs documenting Mucha's Parisian period may also prove to be of particular interest to art lovers. Its wide range and considerable documentary value make this a truly unique publication offering deeper knowledge of all important periods of Alfons Mucha's work.
