Mucha: The Family Collection
The Mucha Foundation is proud to present a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition of works by Alphonse Mucha in the Waldstein Riding Hall, in cooperation with the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic, under the auspices of Miloš Vystrčil, President of the Czech Senate. Mucha believed in the universality of art and its power to inspire and communicate with people. With the power of art, Mucha hoped to work towards a world where people could live together in peace and spiritual unity. Showing the “crown jewels” of the Mucha Family Collection, the world's largest and most comprehensive collection of Mucha's work in the world, this exhibition contains over 200 artworks, some of which have never been exhibited before. It looks at the development of Mucha both as an artist and as a man: as a Czech, a European and a world citizen, living through one of the most turbulent times in European history – with lessons that are perhaps more relevant today than ever before.
The exhibition will be open to all ICOM conference guests, with sparkling wines offered in the beautiful Waldstein Garden.
