About this exhibition

Czech-born Alphonse Mucha is recognised as one of the most prominent artists of the Art Nouveau movement, producing iconic works including Gismonda; the artist’s first poster design for the actress Sarah Bernhardt. Alphonse Mucha: In Quest of Beauty was a blockbuster exhibition from the Mucha Foundation which explored the work of the artist around the theme of beauty – the core principle underlying his artistic philosophy. 

Showing around 100 works primarily drawn from the Mucha Trust collection, the exhibition included drawings, paintings, photographs and some of the artist’s celebrated poster designs, synonymous with the Art Nouveau style of the fin-de-siècle. A number of key ‘aesthetic’ and art nouveau works from National Museum Liverpool’s own collections also featured within the exhibition.
