"Alphonse Mucha in Quest of Beauty" to travel to the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts

The critically acclaimed exhibition Alphonse Mucha in Quest of Beauty, currently on show at the Russell-Cotes Museum in Bournemouth, will be travelling to the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (SCVA) in Norwich where it will open on 6 November. 

Featuring works primarily from Mucha's Paris period, the exhibition examines how le style Mucha evolved and became synonymous with the international Art Nouveau style. It also looks at how his artistic philosophy is reflected on the development of his work beyond the Art Nouveau period, with examples of works produced after his return to the Czech lands in 1910. It will make links between Mucha's work and philosophy and important jewellery, glass and sculpture pieces in the Anderson Collection of Art Nouveau in the collection of the SCVA which share a visual vocabulary in their use of whiplash curves, botanical lines and floral motifs.
