Art Nouveau and Alphonse Mucha Advertisement Posters

Some have argued that Alphonse Mucha single handly started the Art Nouveau movement.  The era was even nicknamed the “le style Mucha”.  It ran for a brief history in time, from 1890 to the start of World War I.

Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939), was a Czechoslovakian painter, illustrator, and graphic artist.  He lived and worked in Paris at the height of the Art Nouveau period. The famous French actress Sarah Bernhardt gave Alphonse his big break when so commissioned him to produce an advertisement poster for her play Gismonda.

The poster he produced stood out from the other advertisements of the day.  It featured softer pastel colours and Alphsones unique arabesque style calligraphy.  Another distinctive feature was the halo-like arch behind Sarah’s head which focused her face.  And when it first appeared on the streets, the poster caused such a buzz that Sarah Bernarht ordered another 4000 prints. She also commissioned Alphonse for another 6 years. 

On the back of this success, Alphonse Mucha went on to produce many more art nouveau advertising posters for iconic brands. He designed posters for JOB cigarette papers, Nestlé baby food, Idéal Chocolate and Moët-Chandon champagne and Perfect bicycles among others.

A lot of Mucha’s advertisement posters had the one thing in common; beautiful women painted in elaborate surroundings, their hair, clothes and flora usually curling in enticing forms.
