Mucha Exhibition opens in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 18th November 2020

The Mucha Foundation is thrilled to announce that the exhibition Alphonse Mucha: o legado do Art Nouveau will open at the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil in Rio de Janeiro on November 18th 2020. The exhibition contains over 100 original Mucha works, including posters, drawings, paintings, prints, objects, books and photographs, and also explores the influence Mucha's work continues to have on the world around us today.

The exhibition runs until February 28th 2021, and is divided into four thematic sections. The first two parts hightlight Mucha's contribution to Art Nouveau in Paris. The third section explores how his art developed after his return to the Czech lands, which culminated in his late masterpiece, The Slav Epic. In the final section, the exhibition looked at the legacy of Mucha's style through examples of works by graphic artists from the 1960s to the present day.

This is the second venue in the Mucha Foundation's ongoing tour of Brazil. At the first venue, the Galeria de Arte do Centro Cultural Fiesp in Sao Paulo, the exhibition attracted a total of 110,970 visitors and was the second most visited exhibition in the venue's history, only behind the exhibition Leonardo Da Vinci: a Natureza da Invenção.
