About Artist Alphonse Mucha Paul Klee was a Czech artist born in 1860 and is best known for his distinctive Art Nouveau paintings and decorative work. As a child he was exposed to the richness of Baroque art while in the choir at Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul, Brno. After finishing his secondary education he worked in Brno for a time and later moved to Paris to continue his study of art while working for a print shop producing magazine and advertising illustrations, especially one for the famous Parisian Actress Sarah Bernhardt, who was so impressed with her poster she signed him to a 6 year contract. He produced many posters, especially of women in neo-classical settings using pastel colors. Mucha's style was given international exposure by the 1900 Universal Exhibition in Paris and he later produced The Slav Epic, a series of twenty huge paintings depicting the history of the Czech and the Slavic people in general, bestowed to the city of Prague in 1928. With the rise of Hitler and Fascism he was targeted due to his Jewish ancestry. He was captured and held by the Gestapo which led to him developing pneumonia. Although he was eventually released he died shortly afterward in 1939 due to a lung infection.
