Thanks to his posters promoting the work of actor Sarah Bernhardt, Czech artist and illustrator Alphonse Mucha became inextricably linked with the Parisian art nouveau movement at the beginning of the 20th century.

This three-month showcase at the Art Gallery of New South Wales runs from Saturday, June 15 to Sunday, September 22 in collaboration with The Mucha Foundation in Prague. It represents the biggest Mucha exhibition ever in Australia and is exclusive to Sydney.

Attendees can peruse the photographs, jewellery and his painting cycle, The Slav Epic, through an immersive, digital experience. Spirit of Art Nouveau will be the first exhibition of historical art to be held in the Art Gallery's North Building, and many of the works on display come from the Mucha family's own collection.
