READING, PA.- From September 26, 2020 through January 3, 2021 the Reading Public Museum presents, Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau includes more than 70 original works by the artist many consider the creator of the Art Nouveau style. From 1895 to 1910 Alphonse Mucha (1860–1939) was one of the most significant artists in all of Europe.




His work became synonymous with the international Art Nouveau style, popularly called "le style Mucha" in Paris at the turn of the century. With a focus on the works created during the 1890s, this exhibition shows a creative man exploring possibilities when the emphasis was on defining a new art, fit for the new century. Mucha's designs for posters, calendars, books and advertising labels circulated widely throughout Europe and America, and his Art Nouveau style dominated visual culture and graphic design for years. Highlights of the exhibition include four versions of a monumental poster Mucha created in 1894 for actress Sarah Bernhardt’s play “Gismonda” and two posters advertising Job cigarette papers (1896 and 1898). The exhibition features advertising posters for Cycles Perfecta bicycles, and his renowned posters for Job cigarette papers. Original drawings, an oil painting, and examples of magazine covers and illustrations are also included in the exhibition.

Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau includes vintage lithographs, original drawings, paintings, books, advertising ephemera, and more. Works and objects in this exhibition are drawn from the holdings of the Dhawan Collection, Los Angeles, one of the largest and finest collections of Alphonse Mucha’s work in the United States.

Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau is organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, California and has been presented at the Dayton Art Institute, Dayton, Ohio; The Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester, NY, and the Hyde Collection, Glens Falls, New York, among others.
