19. Art Nouveau & Alphonse Mucha with Nico Paws
It’s Episode 19 and today we are all about ART NOUVEAU!!!
This dreamy movement within art history is characterised by its whiplash waves and women who look like they are straight out of your dizzy daydreams!
This week I welcome back Scottish Illustrator Nicole McLaughlin aka Nico Paws to talk about the work of the godfather of Art Nouveau - Alphonse Mucha!
Mucha is responsible for some of Art Nouveau’s most iconic depictions but falls into the classic ‘know his work but not the artist’s name’ category.
From dreamy interiors to using pin up girls in advertising, Mucha pathed the way for a new art movement born off the back of The Arts and Crafts Movement.
