A visual language meant to express beauty in 'Alphonse Mucha'

This 1896 lithograph, "Zodiac," is reproduced from Alphonse Mucha, Skira's handsome new overview of the beloved fin-de-siècle Czech artist and designer whose work virtually defines the Art Nouveau style. It is one of more than 250 works—including paintings, photographs, illustrations, posters, sculptural works, jewelry, products, interiors, and theater designs—that tell the artist's cosmopolitan-Bohemian life story in a visual language meant to express beauty. "Art is the expression of innermost feelings," Mucha said, "a spiritual need."
