Bringing joy through art


Famous collection once again on show at the Municipal House

August 2020 /Prague/

From August 2020 lovers of the work of Alphonse Mucha can again admire the world’s most comprehensive collection of his work at the Municipal House in Prague. Besides the classic attraction of his original artifacts, the exhibition also offers a far more contemporary dimension, as some of the works have been set in motion using state-of-the-art technologies.

"Both lovers of classical art, and advocates of moving a piece of our artistic history into contemporary dimensions will enjoy the exhibition. Visitors who saw the exhibition in 2013 can also be excited. The collection has undergone a significant expansion since then, and we have succeeded in getting other very rare originals. At random, I can mention Figures décoratives, the painting Prayer or sketches of the stained glass for St. Vitus Cathedral. We even had its lighted small-scale replica made, which is also on display. Moreover, the sketchbook sheets are digitally turning themselves," says Richard Fuxa, author of the project and chairman of the endowment fund bearing his name, which is in charge of the collection. He also highlights a few selected curiosities. "To dub Alfons Mucha in English, we managed to collaborate with a star of the world format, actor Pierce Brosnan. The moving beauties from one of the most popular posters, The Four Seasons, are also stunning," he adds.

We did not choose the Municipal House to host the collection by chance. Even the success of its first exhibition with the public, when it became The most visited exhibition of fine art in the history of the Czech Republic, was not the reason. The link are the traces Alfons Mucha left at the Municipal House, as he decorated the Mayor’s Hall. This is also recalled by the current exhibition. However, the exhibition is shown in the same area as seven years ago. On 550 square meters, visitors will admire 220 Mucha’s original works. And the same as seven years ago, Karel Srp, renowned curator and expert on Alfons Mucha, has developed the exhibition concept.

The exhibition in Korea offers a glimpse of the unique combination of original Czech Art Nouveau art with Korean design and floral arrangements. Visitors will also be able to have their pictures taken at a photo corner with a flower arrangement to create a unique souvenir from the exhibition.

The importance of this unique exhibition is also evidenced by the strong support of the Czech embassy and Czech centers in Seoul. Gustav Slamečka, Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Korea, and a group of senators led by Pavel Fischer also attended the opening.

Add to it that it is the premiere for the combined exhibiton of Mucha’s posters and his patriotic works - the big format canvas The Slav Epic, so it is an exhibition predetermined to be successful.“ says Richard Fuxa, chairman of Richard Fuxa Foundation.
