The Complesso del Vittoriano is housing a major retrospective on the leading representative of Art Nouveau and one of the most celebrated artists in Europe at the turn of the 20th century: Alphonse Mucha.
The exhibition is bringing a remarkable nucleus of works by the Czech artist to Rome: over 200 masterpieces illustrating the development of Mucha's career and the maturation of a man who lived in one of the most tumultuous periods of European history.
The grand Roman exhibition, curated by Tomoko Sato, is bringing to Italy many posters, drawings, paintings, decorative works, books and photographs for the first time. Through works such as Gismonda (1894), The Seasons: Summer (1896), Madonna of the Lilies (1905) and Study for 'The Slav Epic' cycle No. 14: The Defence of Sziget (c. 1913-14), the exhibition explores six different aspects of the artist's personality across as many sections: Bohemian in Paris; creator of the Mucha style; cosmopolitan; mystic; patriot; and philosopher-artist.
