Zodiac by Alphonse Mucha, 1896
Alphonse Mucha is definitly one of my favorite painters. I’m in love with his style Art Nouveau (artistic movement from the end of the 19th century). He made a lot of posters (for Sarah Bernhartd’s parts in various plays), also advertising posters, decorative panels…these being his most famous artworks. Mucha is Czech, and made posters about his homeland.
He offers a new look on advertisement as he can link real art and commercials. Therefore it is representativ of his time. Great colors, details, recognizable style, I advise you to take a look at his whole work if you don’t know him and if you all ready do, well look for new artworks to surprise you ;)
