AlphonseВ MariaВ MuchaВ

DueВ toВ hisВ distinctВ andВ unconventionalВ style, В AlphonseВ MariaВ MuchaВ isВ knownВ greatlyВ forВ hisВ illustriousВ contributionsВ inВ moldingВ theВ aestheticsВ ofВ FrenchВ ArtВ NouveauВ (FrenchВ forВ " newВ art”)В atВ theВ turnВ ofВ theВ nineteenthВ centuryВ (" AlphonseВ MuchaВ Biography” 1). В However, В MuchaВ wasВ notВ anВ instantВ triumph. В ThroughВ hardВ work, В determination, В andВ passion, В heВ becameВ theВ epitomeВ ofВ theВ classicВ ragsВ­toВ­richesВ story. В Today, В AlphonseВ isВ famousВ notВ onlyВ forВ hisВ workВ andВ itsВ lastingВ impressionВ onВ art, В butВ howВ heВ reachedВ success. В В ToВ begin, В AlphonseВ MariaВ MuchaВ wasВ bornВ onВ JulyВ 24, В 1860В inВ Ivancice, В aВ townВ inВ theВ SouthВ MoravianВ RegionВ inВ theВ CzechВ Republic. В HeВ wasВ theВ sonВ ofВ AndreasВ MuchaВ andВ AmalieВ Equivoca. В AlthoughВ drawingВ wasВ hisВ childhoodВ passion, В hisВ singingВ skillsВ enabledВ himВ toВ furtherВ hisВ educationВ throughВ highВ schoolВ inВ theВ MoravianВ capitalВ ofВ BrunnВ (nowВ Brno). В UntilВ 1879, В heВ didВ mostlyВ decorativeВ paintingВ work, В primarilyВ theatricalВ scenery. В Then, В atВ ageВ nineteen, В heВ traveledВ toВ ViennaВ toВ workВ atВ aВ majorВ VietnameseВ thespianВ designВ company, В whileВ simultaneouslyВ continuingВ hisВ artisticВ studies. В AfterВ aВ fireВ ruinedВ hisВ boss'sВ businessВ inВ 1881, В heВ wentВ backВ toВ Moravia, В doingВ generallyВ independentВ jobs. В Then, В CountВ KarlВ KhuenВ ofВ MikulovВ employedВ MuchaВ toВ embellishВ HrusovanyВ EmmahofВ CastleВ withВ murals. В HavingВ beenВ impressedВ byВ Alphonse'sВ product, В heВ offeredВ toВ sponsorВ Mucha'sВ officialВ trainingВ atВ theВ MunichВ AcademyВ ofВ FineВ Arts. В InВ 1887, В AlphonseВ resumedВ hisВ instructionВ atВ AcademieВ JulianВ andВ thenВ AcademieВ

Colarossi while also creating magazine and advertising illustrations (" Alphonse Maria Mucha Biography” 1).  After two years,  the monetary support was ended and he was set loose to the streets of Paris,  streets he would soon change.  But at that moment,  27­year­old Mucha was the stereotypical tortured artist,  poor of money and plans (" Mucha” 1).  Some years later,  his life flipped.  Around Christmas of 1894,  Mucha went inside a print shop where there was an immense call for a new poster to publicize a play featuring Sarah Bernhardt,  the most well known actress in Paris,  at the Theatre de la Renaissance on the Boulevard Saint­Martin.  He volunteered to produce a lithographed poster in two weeks time.  On January 1,  1895,  the endorsement for the show ​

(" MuchaВ atВ aВ Glance” 2). В

TheВ canvasesВ wereВ startedВ inВ 1912В andВ reachedВ completionВ inВ 1926. В InВ 1928, В CharlesВ Crane, В Mucha'sВ financialВ backer, В andВ MuchaВ himselfВ presentedВ themВ officiallyВ asВ aВ giftВ toВ theВ CityВ ofВ PragueВ (3). В MuchaВ alsoВ ornamentedВ theВ TheaterВ ofВ FineВ Arts, В andВ gaveВ muralsВ toВ theВ Mayor'sВ OfficeВ atВ MunicipalВ HouseВ andВ otherВ cityВ landmarks. В AfterВ CzechoslovakiaВ gainedВ itsВ
