The Slav Epic - for a good cry

If you know of Alphonse Mucha, you probably know his art nouveau posters with the outlined ladies and plants and stuff.

Do you also know the Slav Epic?
Read about it here:

It's just masterful stuff. I love the fading dark values, the colour palettes, they both remind me a bit of Frazetta. And it's epic and posed and massive. :)

  1. I love Mucha's work ( especially his women :) ) and this cycle is - wonderful. Too bad they are fighting over where to hung these masterpieces - especially since City of Prague has not gallery space to them - eh,

    Anyway, I love being a Slav - :)
