YAYOI KUSAMA & Alfons Mucha
at The National Art Center, Tokyo

国立新美術館の
草間彌生展とミュシャ展へ。
作品のエネルギーと大混雑っぷりに、
なんかもうぐったりな感じで(笑)

国立新美術館も、
もう10年も経つんですね。
街路樹も草間さんの作品に。
桜が咲く頃にまた来たいな。

ではでは、素敵な日曜日を☆
Have a wonderful Sunday !

Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939)
“Maddona of the Lilies” (1905)
Tempera on canvas
Art nouveau
Located in the Mucha Museum, Prague, Czech Republic

Poster for ‘Imprimerie Cassan Fils’ (1896). Alphonse Mucha (Czech, 1860-1939). Colour lithograph. Mucha Museum, Prague.

In this poster for the Cassan Fils printing works, Mucha combines the real with the emblematic - the semi-naked model contrasts with the allegorical, faun-like printer who represents the printing industry. The eyes in the mosaic border could be seen to represent the readers who benefit from the printing works.
