Hello all, been away from this blog for so long that I don’t know where to start. Well you can say that I’m kind of a ghost blogger now that come and goes as I only blog when I have the time. Well that’s ok as long as readers and fellow bloggers don’t take me as Reagan’s Ghost or something.
Well as I have some time and some energy left in me today, I like to share the biography of the the famous painter known as Alphonse Mucha as well as these few awesome paintings from him.
Alphonse Mucha was born in 1860 in Ivancice, Moravia, Czech Republic. He studied art in Paris at the Academie Julian but it was only for two years as there was no supporting fund and he had to discontinue. He lived his life day by day drawing illustrations for magazines but in 1894 he was commission for a poster of actress Sarah Bernard and that made him famous. From that poster he was later busy doing commissions for commercial print advertising. His fame and fortune did not last long as war broke out and he was arrested when the German Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia. He was shortly released but died not long after in 1939.
