Pioneering Czechoslovakian artist Alphonse Mucha (1860 1939) created a sumptuous Art Nouveau style filled with soft colors, curving lines and ethereal women. Mucha was inspired to paint by the artwork he saw in churches. A starving artist in Paris, Mucha skyrocketed to fame after he created a life size poster for Sarah Bernhardts play, Gismonda. The poster, which differed from current artistic trends, made him a household name and earned him a six-year contract from Bernhardt. In the 1960s, Muchas style was revived, especially in psychedelic posters
