This spring the Bratislava City Gallery presents a retrospective of Alphonse Mucha. Many of the displayed works are on loan from numerous Czech collections, not only from the most renowned galleries and museums, but also from smaller institutions and even from private owners. The variety of artistic genres, including relief and stained glass, testifies to the versatility of the artist’s craftsmanship. However, predominant among the showcased works are paintings and drawings, which most fully capture the master’s talent.
