I have had a long standing love affair with the art of Alphonse Mucha. In my eyes he’s the embodiment of the Art Nouveau movement, and a source of tremendous inspiration. His precise line work and segmented geometric illustrations create a sense of awe for me that I can’t really put into words. There’s a sense of balance in his work that puts me at ease when I’m looking at it, and I strive to find that in my own artwork.
One of my all-time favorite collections of his are his Seasons images (pictured here).
How about you? Do you have a favorite image(s) by Mucha? Is there another illustrator/artist from the pages of history that you like better?
