On January 1, 1895, Mucha’s first poster, Gismonda, quickly became a hot topic in Paris. Life-sized Sarah Bernhardt seems to have escaped from the stage. At first glance, the decorative motifs and the arrangement of letters make you feel the delicate intentions that are conscious of the human line of sight. This technique, which followed Mucha’s poster after that, was already called “Mucha style” around 1900 and still fascinates people. This exhibition focuses on Mucha’s representative poster works, and also introduces Mucha-style guidebooks such as sketches and “Decorative Materials”. While unraveling the motif, composition, and Mucha’s design theory, we invite you to the world of “Mucha style”.
