Possibly My Favorite

I have loved Mucha since I first saw one of his paintings on a poster at a flea market when I was about 10 years old. I fell in love with his romantic, flowy style, and his abundant use of color and flowers. I think he is my favorite artist of all time. I plan to get one of his paintings tattooed on me at some point.

Do you have a particular work in mind to adapt as a tattoo?

Poppies and Wheat.

I love the atmosphere of an artist's studio ... can imagine the smell of oils and linseed ... dusty drapes ... being a model posing ... love old black and white photos ... I find them really evocative.

^ Thank you for the link- that was beautiful, all of it!

His work has such a magical quality - I love the photos of his studio on the foundation website - could just imagine what it would be like to be there ... <br />

^ That exact painting (Seasons) is what I'm using as my computer wallpaper right now. Beautiful.

Yes, one of the truly great Art Nouveau artists. I particularly like his 'seasons' paintings. I saw an exhbition of his work at the Barbican Art Gallery some years back.
