Calendrier――Mucha and the Twelve Months

The word “calendrier” is French for calendar. The Czech artist Alfons Mucha (1860-1939) is known for his work in the field of commercial art, including posters, which he created during his time in Paris. However, because his series of posters and decorative panels are so famous, his genre of calendars tends to only be treated as ancillary, along with postcards and menus. This exhibition, therefore, focuses on the appeal of Mucha’s diverse calendar works.
In addition to introducing a number of works depicting the seasons and events, the exhibition traces the life of Mucha, who lived within the four seasons just as we do today, over the course of twelve months, highlighting important days in his life. The exhibition also showcases calendars and hikifuda (flyers) that were created in Sakai, Osaka, during Mucha’s lifetime, so that visitors can experience first-hand the calendar cultures of East and West at that time.
