Mucha’s poster are on display again after five years. Exclusively with The Slav Epic
May 2018 /Brno/
A unique combination of two forms of the famous Czech Art Nouveau painter, Alfons Mucha, can be seen now for the first time, in an exposition of The Slav Epic and the widest collection of Mucha’s posters and other artefacts worldwide.
The exhibition named Two Worlds offers a view and comparison of the painter’s own commercial and patriotic work - Mucha’s life-long dream he had never succeeded to realize, in just one place. Nine canvas - The Slav Epic - and more than 130 pieces form a collection completed in the past by the former tennis player Nr 1, Ivan Lendl, can be seen on the Fair Ground in Brno. Visitors have a unique opportunity to see two worldwide unique things. The biggest collection of posters and the distinctive collection of canvas of The Slav Epic.
„Since that time, there were significant changes in the collection, several dozens of artefacts had been added to it and right now in Brno, many of them are presented to the public for the first time. 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.
The exhibition Two Worlds takes places in Brno until 31. 12. 2018.
