Analysis of selected work of Alphonse Mucha 

My analysis of four of Mucha’s works revealed many characteristics typical to the artist’s techniques, compositions, and subject matter. His combinations of beautiful female figures, rich ornamentation and extravagant lettering radiate luxury and pleasure. Mucha used ‘formless’ materials such as hair to create whiplash curves and decorative forms which, paired with his intricate pattern work, create highly detailed pieces. Linework is intrinsic to Mucha’s works. All of his forms incorporate a thick black outline to their stylised aesthetic. Mucha also experiments with the overlapping of multiple elements, such as the common use of the large circular frame motif and the female figure.
