Mucha poster exhibition opens at Prague’s Municipal House

A unique exhibition of posters by the great Czech Art Nouveau artist Alfons Mucha is being launched at Prague’s Municipal House on Tuesday evening. The 116 works on display form an almost complete collection of Mucha’s poster art and are owned by the Czech-born former tennis star Ivan Lendl, who has been collecting the artist’s work for some years. The venue is significant, as Mucha himself created some of the Municipal House’s murals in the early 20th century. The exhibition, which is being described as one of the biggest art events of the year in the Czech Republic, runs until July 30.
