The exhibition, organized by Chiara Campagnoli, Rubens Fogacci and Deborah Petroni of Pallavicini srl in collaboration with Mucha Foundation and with the curatorship of Tomoko Sato, puts an unprecedented look on the work of the great artist
Czech-born Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) was one of the most influential and celebrated artists in fin-de-siècle Paris, best known for his graphic work such as his theatre posters for the ‘super-star’ actress Sarah Bernhardt and his decorative panels featuring graceful women. Mucha created a distinctive style – le style Mucha – characterised by harmonious compositions, sinuous forms, organic lines and muted palette, which became synonymous with the newly emerging decorative style of the time – Art Nouveau.
Palazzo Pallavicini is the elegant eighteenth-century mansion, originally from the fifteenth century, in the heart of ancient Bologna, in Via San Felice 24. Inhabited in the past by great noble families, in 1770 welcomed the performance of the then fourteen-year-old child prodigy Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart . Today the Palace is home to museum exhibitions and events.
