Alphonse Mucha (Czech, 1860 - 1939)
Czech artist Mucha began his career as a theatrical scene-painter. He studied art in Munich and in Paris, where he lived from 1888. Mucha is best known for his flowing art nouveau poster designs. In the 1890s, his work for the actress Sarah Bernhardt brought him to the public attention. He designed posters, stage sets, costumes and jewellery for her. In 1922, Mucha settled in Prague. As Czechoslovakia had recently won its independence, he gave his services for free to design the country's first banknotes and stamps, amongst other items.
