The famous collection in motion

Visit the unique exhibition "iMUCHA – A Famous Collection in Motion" to be drawn into the atmosphere of the decorative Art Nouveau. The most famous collection of posters and other works by Alphonse Mucha, the foundations of which were laid by the former top-ranked tennis star Ivan Lendl, was awarded the title as the Most Visited Fine Arts Exhibition in the History of the Czech Republic at its first exhibition in 2013 in Prague's Municipal House. This time you can enjoy views of newly acquired masterpieces and especially the experience of digital processing. This has breathed life not only into the models from Mucha's posters. We offer you a small taste of what awaits you in the Exhibition.

Slav Epic

Undoubtedly Alphonse Mucha’s most monumental work, admired by millions of people around the world, is the Slav Epic. Twenty large-format canvases onto which the master of Art Nouveau imprinted the history of the Czech Slavs and other Slavic nations. When you look at the moving parts of the Slav Epic all together as a single whole and enhanced by dramatic music, you will literally be drawn into a piece of our history.

Endless inspiration

Models from posters in motion, the stunning animated plot of the Slav Epic, with Alphonse Mucha himself speaking from his self-portrait. All of this turns a standard exhibition into an unrepeatable moment. But the list does not end there. On 550 square metres you will find more than two hundred original works by Alphonse Mucha, many of which will literally draw you into times dating back more than a century.

Exhibition

Alphonse Mucha

Alphonse Mucha was a world-famous Czech painter, graphic artist and designer, who became famous especially for his applied art (posters, labels, books, jewellery, furniture). He was also a key figure in the decorative Art Nouveau style, which shaped the "look" of the time. Here, in the photograph, Mucha's life is "told" by his friends, including Paul Gaugin (far left), and the Czech Art Nouveau giant reveals something about himself on his own in the Exhibition.
Welcoming visitors to their own exhibition is a common practice for many artists, at least at the opening. Alphonse Mucha, however, logically can no longer do so, having died 81 years ago after lengthy interrogations by the Gestapo. And yet, at the iMucha Exhibition opening in the Municipal House, he still makes an illusory appearance ...
