Alphonse Mucha was a Czech painter and illustrator from the late 1800s who was known for his distinctive art nouveau design styles that have withstood the test of time. His iconic works were featured in different advertisements from the 19th century, from perfumes to food and drink, and even theatrical posters.
Art Nouveau is French for "New Art." This art movement and style of decoration and architecture became popular from 1890 to 1910. The art is known to have curvilinear depictions of leaves and flowers, often in the form of vines. They created this style of art as a way to push back against the imitative historicism that dominated much of the 19th century.
