Czech artist Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) was a renowned Art Nouveau master, first attracting attention in Paris with his striking posters of actress Sarah Bernhardt.  Later Mucha would return to his native country, combining his patriotism and artistry in the Slav Epic, a monumental work of some 20 large-scale canvases.
