masters: alphonse mucha

Alphonse Mucha has always been one of my more inspiring masters. He was a czech Art Nouveau artist - probably the most famous - who produced lots of paintings, postcards, advertising, illustrations and more mostly figuring women and decorations. Though his artworks are everywhere on posters, boxes, t-shirts or whatever, his name is not so known as it should. As a teen, I was in love with his strong outline and that incredible capability to be essential and rich at the same time. The elegant use of colour, the perfection of the patternings and the precision of the frames always enchanted me.
I'm still searching for that grace
