Alphonse Mucha

Alphonse Mucha: the parties are great. Today I will tell you about the author, whose work fills me with inspiration and strength. This Alphonse Mucha, a Czech painter, whose works you somehow familiar, because he is considered the founder of the style of "modern" that have a strong position not only in painting, but also in design (art Nouveau), and advertising (poster kitsch). No wonder the Fly was the author of a number of images for all sorts of labels and posters. However, this poster and label "gloss", known to a wide circle, is not the only party of the work of this talented and original artist.     the art of Alphonse felt irresistibly drawn since childhood. Maybe that's why he was expelled from high school with a hard-hitting statement: “in a brazen lie and permanent passes worship". Good grades the future masters were only singing and drawing. However, professionals do not soon appreciated his creativity. So from Prague Mucha received a response that cannot be accepted for training in mind a complete lack of talent. Strikingly, as often happens in the lives of recognized geniuses of this misunderstanding! Perhaps the thorny path to success - the key to the development of creative self. And the test of strength.I must say that the young artist that passed the tests, and not changed to the dream. Since 1880, the Fly works  theatrical decorator, house painter, author of street portraits and sketches of wall inlays. Efforts Alphonse are not in vain. His notice, and in 1885 influential patrons satisfied the artist at the Academy of fine arts in Munich, and then in the Paris académie Julian.Brilliant capital took unkind young talent: Fly worked hard, lived in poverty, sometimes, in order to buy the paint, had to economize on food. But with persistence and work was assisted by the artist. In 1891 the Flies develop a serious relationship with book publishers and 1892 he commissioned illustrates a multi-volume "Germany". Stunning success with the public use of his playbills, created in a unique and refined style. "the Singing lines of" their colorful living paintings he was able to win the heart of even the Sarah Bernhardt, which has concluded a contract with him, and for 6 years I ordered their posters only Mucha! So that was the famous diva in the image of the Czech masters:     Since that time the artist falls worldwide fame: waiting for him in many countries around the world, everywhere meeting as a hero. New orders have no end. The fly finally gets financial independence. However, the master himself seriously appreciated and not taken all this turmoil around his works, considering its only purpose - to serve the Motherland and the Slavs in General. "At a time when my table is breaking from food, – with bitterness he wrote to the father, " my people are starving, suffering...". Perhaps that is why, despite all the decorative elegance "polished" Flies  Slavic theme was in his Central works.Look closely at the images that are out of the hands of the painter! In the paintings of the Flies handsome Golden-haired Slavic women:Their Slavic roots Fly never forgot, and although often it was called the French nickname "Muse" he always emphasized its origins not only in creativity, but also their appearance. In old photographs, the artist often depicted in Slavic simple blouse.Even before the outbreak of the Second World War, the Fly went on a trip to the Slavic countries in order to gather material for future large-scale cycle, the idea of which he harbored in the heart for many years. In 1913, a Fly came to Russia, where he met met  with officials who still remembered the abolition of serfdom, many painted and photographed. The artist visited the Tretyakov gallery in Moscow and left her a glowing review. He believed that in Russia at the turn of the century has finally awakened native Russian spirit and wrote that Russian art is deeply symbolic.After returning home, master twenty years devoted to the epochal cycle of paintings - "Slav Epic," which was considered and symbolically portrayed important milestones in the formation and development of the history of Slavic peoples: Czechs, Serbs, Bulgarians, Russians and others. It is noteworthy that the Slavic peoples are perceived by the author as a unity of many. The fly has finished its cycle  in 1928, when the idea of the unity of the Slavs were not as popular as in the beginning of XX century, and the wizard has many critics interpreted with skepticism. Today the interest in "Slavic epic" Flies reborn."the Slavs to their ancestral homeland" "the Feast of Svantovit""the Coronation of the Serbian king Stefan Dusan""defence Zieta""Printing the Kralice Bible in Ivančice"a Few more I want to focus on the painting cycle "the Abolition of serfdom in Russia". The researchers suggest that the Fly was familiar with the painting Surikov "Morning Strelets'execution" because all the figures in his picture placed exactly on the same background as the figures in the painting Surikov:A. Mucha. "the Abolition of serfdom in Russia"I. Surikov. "Morning Strelets'execution"In my opinion, the similarity of these works obviously."přemysl Otakar II""the Apotheosis of the history of the Slavs"of Course, we could not ignore the work of Alfons Mucha, and today happily use his images to create our murals, frescobaldis and glass mosaic. Perhaps among them, you will find those that appeal to you heart:what do you think of the work of Alphonse Mucha? Do his work suitable for interior decoration?
