Alfons Maria Mucha July 24, 1860 – July 14, 1939), was known internationally as Alphonse Mucha. He was a prominent Czech painter, illustrator and graphic artist, living in Paris during the Art Nouveau period, and is best known for his distinctly stylized and decorative theatrical posters, particularly those of Sarah Bernhardt.

He produced illustrations, advertisements, decorative panels, and designs, which became among the best-known images of the period.

In the second part of his career, at the age of 43, he returned to his homeland of Bohemia-Moravia region in Austria and devoted himself to painting a series of twenty monumental canvases known as The Slav Epic, depicting the history of all the Slavic peoples of the world, which he painted between 1912 and 1926.

In 1928, on the 10th anniversary of the independence of Czechoslovakia, he presented the series to the Czech nation. He considered it his most important work. It is now on display in Prague.
