Acquisitions

As and when its resources allow, the Mucha Trust acquires additional works to enhance the collection.

Its first acquisition was in 1993 when it was able to acquire Head of a Girl at auction in Paris.

Since then the Trust has acquired many beautiful posters and lithographic works as well as drawings and pastels, sculptures, paintings and jewellery pieces.

We are especially grateful to people who donate works to us and are always delighted to talk to potential donors
