Mucha, Mucha and Mucha!

The past month i had the opportunity to do a short city break in Prague. I was told many times that Prague was beautiful but you only really realize it when you are crossing the Charles Bridge.

Was in this visit that i discover in more detail the wonderful artist that Alfons Mucha was.
Not only did he do some really beautiful posters for brands like Moët & Chandon.

But he was a great painter, as we can see in his paintings at Prague's Municipal House

or in the stained glass window at the St. Vitus Cathedral.

Of course i couldn't resist and bought two prints which are Seasons 1896

and Moet and Chandon Cremant Imperial. This print is with out any doubt my favorite, you can see how he captured the elegance and an imperial look.

For my next trip! i need to see Mucha's Slav Epic paintings.
