Mucha in Spain
The viewer's silhouette in this photo, which I've adjusted because it was overexposed, gives us an idea of the scale of Alphonse Mucha's The Virgin of the Lillies (1905). There are two versions (CLICK and scroll down to see them side-by-side). This is one of the exhibits in a major Spanish touring exhibition of Mucha's art, opened today at the Fundación la Caixa in Madrid in association with The Mucha Foundation (CLICK). Mucha is sadly neglected in the UK, where Art Nouveau tends to be seen as trivial and pretty-pretty; but cheap prints of his works are widely available in high street shops and his style influenced more than one British LP cover (title link).
