Alphonse Mucha: In Quest of Beauty


William Brown St, Liverpool, England L1


Alphonse Mucha: In Quest of Beauty is a major touring exhibition from the Mucha Foundation which explores the work of the artist around the theme of beauty – the core principle underlying his artistic philosophy. Showing around 100 works primarily drawn from the Mucha Trust Collection, the exhibition will include drawings, paintings, photographs and some of the artist’s celebrated poster designs, synonymous with the Art Nouveau style of the fin-de-siècle. A number of key ‘aesthetic’ and art nouveau works from National Museum Liverpool’s own collections will also feature within the exhibition.

Dear Madamoiselle,
As you indicated in your lovely letter it wil be then, that last Thursday (tomorrow) in the afternoon that I will have the pleasure of waiting for you in my workshop at 17 E. 59th St.
In waiting this day, I pray, Madam that you receive here my best compliments.

Letter to Mrs. Sramek

Dear Mrs. Sramek,We have returned from our excursion to the ancient, famous city of Nymburg and remember the cordial welcome and the extraordinary hospitality with which you and your spounse greeted us. This gives us reason to thank you once more very cordially.

We made it home all right, but it rained on the way and now a thunderstorm is starting, so that we are happy to have arrived under our cozy roof.

With cordial regards and a kiss on the hand for the lady of the house,
your
