Alphonse Mucha (1860 - 1939) is the visionary master of Art Nouveau. Born in what is now known as the Czech Republic, Mucha had his artistic breakthrough in Paris in 1895 with his posters of the world famous actress Sarah Bernhardt. Mucha's extensive work consists of prints, paintings, drawings and design objects of global fame.
In 1910 Charles R. Crane, an American millionaire, agreed to finance the highlight of Mucha's artistic work, The Slav Epic, a series of 20 monumental paintings which focuses on the history of the Slavs. This film discovers these widely unknown paintings in a castle in Moravia.
